Vinification

Four and a half tonne of pristine Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was picked at 12.7 Baume in the cool of the morning. It was then placed in open fermenters  and macerated on skins for 24 days. The cap was lovingly hand plunged four times a day in the early stages of the ferment, to extract colour and tannin. The free run juice was drained and the fermented grapes were basket pressed to tank. The wine under-went a malolactic fermentation which softens the acid. The wine was then racked to French barriques, ( 2/3 new and  & 1/3 one and two year old) and matured for 12 months.
