50% of this wine was treated like a red on arrival to the winery with fruit destemmed into picking bins. The juice remained on skins for seven days with pressing occurring once 2 Baume had been consumed by yeast activity. This component was then fermented in stainless steel on full solids and transferred to oak for maturation once complete. The other component was treated traditionally with juice settled after pressing and clear juice racked and inoculated with selected yeast strain. The two components were blended in old oak for maturation in June with bottling occurring five months later in November 2018.
