The grapes were harvested by hand and fermented in 5 separate batches. Each was inoculated with selected yeast to ensure the desired fermentation. The wines were macerated 1-2 weeks post fermentation before pressing and malolactic fermentation. The 5 batches were matured separately in 225 litre French oak barriques (40% new, 30% 1 year old, 30% older) for 15 months before blending.
