Grapes are crushed into small static fermenters where the liberations of colour and tannin are controlled by plunging the skins, irrigating the fermented wine over the cap and draining the juices from skins before flooding them back. Select parcels are given extended skin contact before pressing. Components are aged eighteen months in a selection of new and prior use American, Hungarian and French oak hogsheads and barriques, crafted at the Yalumba cooperage. The parts are assembled and treated to a further term in barrel before bottling.
