As with all of our Reserve and Estate wines the fruit was grown biodynamically and the winemaking practices are also fully biodynamic using only the natural wild yeast and not adding any enzymes or other artificial additives to the wine. The fruit was crushed to small 2 tonne fermenters with 20% whole bunches added and it was held cold for ten days to aid in colour extraction. Through the wild fermentation it was plunged three times a day and then allowed to sit on its skins for seven days before pressing and racking to 40% new French oak barrels. No filtration or fining agents* were used to ensure the delicate flavours of the variety are preserved.

*Fining agents are protein based compounds used to reduce the level of phenolics in the wine so it is vegan friendly.
