Picked at perfect ripeness, bunches are destemmed and crushed into open fermenters, inoculated and vinified, treated to regular pumpovers whilst in contact with skins, extracting deep colour, optimal flavours and judicious tannin. Upon completion of ferments and a course of malolactic, components are filled to a selection of seasoned and new French oak hogsheads, integrating intense fruit flavours while infusing subtle complexities, imparting a measure of cocoa warmth while softening the tannins. It remains a lovely surprise at assemblage time to see which barrels shine from the depths of the cellar to be worthy of inclusion into Pramie Shiraz.
