About The Harvest

Cold morning grapes were picked, destalked, crushed and pumped into red wine fermenters where enzymes for flavour extraction were added.

In The Cellar

24-hour skin contact was given before being lightly pressed. The juice was settled clean and treated with Bentonite to make protein stable before being fortified to 19% Alc.
