Bress subscribe to the belief that a single terroir cannot be all things to all styles of wine. Bress are blessed with access to harvests from several sites throughout Victoria which can be vinified and assembled into statuesque wines of strong varietal definition and clearly distinguishable Victorian regionality. Shiraz is treated to a combination of whole bunch and gentle crushing into open fermenters. A slow vinification is initiated through indigenous yeast strains, the ferments are treated to hand plunging thrice daily. After pressing, the wine is transferred to French oak hogsheads for completion of malolactic, following which Bress is racked and left to mature under oak for a year.
