VINIFICATION: Hand-picked on the 23rd March and 4th April. Each clone was small batch vinified with a small percentage of whole cluster per ferment. Cold Soaked for up to 7 days before indigenous yeast fermentation kicked in. Gentle
plunging each day, followed by post maceration of up to 11 days to ensure
optimum fruit and tannin balance. Total time on skin; 23 days. Drained
directly into selected French oak barriques (28% new) where the wine aged
for 12 months during which wild malolactic fermentation occurs. The wine-making was very much in keeping with the traditional practices of the Old World. The winemaker, Rudi Bauer, has combined these techniques, and his own personal understanding, to create this wine.
