All the vineyard parcels were harvested and vinified separately. Almost all (80%) of the grapes were given 12 to 24 hours extended skin contact before only the free-run juice was transferred to tank for fermentation. The balance (20%) was “Whole Bunch” pressed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wines were fermented at low temperatures with selected yeast strains to highlight each vineyard’s specific characteristics. After fermentation the wine was left for on the lees before final blending and bottling.
