The fruit is harvested in the coolest hours of the night, using selective harvesters able of gently but thoroughly sorting berries similarly to hand sorting while in the dark. At the winery, the fruit is gently split or kept whole to promote different levels of carbonic maceration and further add complexity. The primary fermentation takes place in a combination of open top and closed stainless fermenters, allowing perfect control of the temperature as well as the full range of red skin extraction work. The skins are allowed to soak as long as necessary to achieve the best balance of tannins, color and fruit expression before being gently pressed and the wine put straight to barrels for secondary fermentation.
Our Shiraz batches are aged in French and American oak for 16 to 18 months and barrels are individually tasted and selected before the blend is assembled and prepared for bottling.
