Wine Information

The grapes were whole bunched pressed and cold settled overnight, after which the juice was racked to barrel and a concrete egg for fermentation. Regular lees stirring was done for the first three months to add extra palate weight and creaminess to the wine. The wine remained on the gross lees for 9 months before being racked and blended for bottling with the final blend having 8% concrete egg, 16% new 500L French oak, 76% seasoned French oak barrels.
