Description

Each Varietal was harvested separately at varying stages. Grenache and Syrah were whole-bunch fermented while Cinsault and Petit Syrah were crushed and destemmed. Each batch was fermented separately in open top fermenters with wild/natural yeast. A short post fermentation maceration occurred before the wine was then pressed and transferred to 500 litre and 300 lite barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine spent a further 8 months in barrel before final blending and bottling.
