Fruit is completely hand harvested and placed into small, traditional open top fermenters. A component of whole bunches is introduced, vintage permitting, to initiate partial carbonic maceration, extract fine stem tannins and enhance complexity. Temperatures are kept between a wide range of 15°C and 34°C throughout a fortnight of vinification, while treating the ferments to cap management regimens of hand plunging and pumpovers. The finished wine is treated to a extended term in a selection of seasoned and new, large format French barrels and smaller oak puncheons.
