Grapes are picked by a hand off a prestigious site in the eminent Barossa hamlet of Stonewell, vines are all trained onto a single cordon wire, verticle shoot positioned for optimal exposure to the sun. Bunches are destemmed into open top fermenters, musts are inoculated and vinified at 22ºC to 25ºC, ferments are pumped over twice daily until complete sugar dryness. Upon completion, batches are held on skins for a month of maceration, followed by pressing and racking to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
