The grapes were picked at full ripeness from selected vineyards displaying the good quality fruit. The grape bunches were de-stemmed and placed in small open top fermenters where a 10-15 % saigne was done prior to fermentation to enhance the extraction of colour and flavour. The tanks was mixed once daily via a short pump over and once fermentation was in full swing the tanks was punch down or pumped over through the skin cap three times a day to ensure optimal extraction of colour, aromatics and structure.
