Pemberton was established to viticulture in 1982, its relative youth as a winegrowing region has a yielded a succession of the most outstanding vintages. Castelli's strict regimen of close canopy management achieves harvests brimming with fully ripenend flavours. Fruit is crushed and held for a term of cold soak, inoculated to yeast strains F15 and FX10, followed by a rather warm vinification for a fortnight on skins at temperatures of 25°C to 30°C. Ferments are treated to pump overs twice daily, gentle tannin extractions and a course or two of rack returns. Upon completion, batches are transferred to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for a judicious spell of maturation.
