The grapes were picked in the cool of the morning, destemmed and placed in two open fermenters. Innoculated with a neutral yeast and the cap plunged up to four times a day, by hand. After 10 days the wine was kept on extended skins for a further ten days. Then the wine was drained and the must basket pressed off to tank where it underwent a malolactic fermentation which softens the acid. The wine was then racked to a mix of one and two year old French barriques, then left to mature for 10 months. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Shiraz. Bottled in July 2018.
