The many parcels making up this wine were crushed into and fermented in open top vessels, with regular pump overs three times daily to extract flavours, colour and tannins. The batches were then drained and pressed to tank and then racked to barrel for oak maturation where the wine spent twelve months in hogsheads (12% new French oak and the balance in one to four year old French oak). The pH is 3.38 and the acidity is 6.9. The winemaker was Matthew Wenk.
This wine was sealed with a screwcap.
