Grapes are destemmed into open fermenters, pH is adjusted and vinification takes place over the course of a week at 24°C. The ferments are treated to hand plunging thrice daily until completion and basket pressed by hand in the old world style, a component is transferred to seasoned oak barrels for malolactic and maturation. A mostly Shiraz wine with inclusions of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, all parts are racked and returned to barrel two or three times throughout a term of twelve months, achieving a clarified wine that does not need any fining or filtration prior to bottling.
