The hand picked berries are placed in 8kg buckets and transported promptly to the De Bortoli wineworks. Bunches are destemmed, crushed and tipped into fourteen tonnes fermenters. Upon completion of ferments, batches are kept at a minimum of 25C and left on skins for two to three weeks. Batches are pressed, settled overnight and gravity filled to a selection of oak casks for a year's maturation at 16C. Components are then racked and gently aerated every three to four months throughout the course of age.
