Red Wine Production
All our grapes are handpicked and processed separately.
This allow all varieties to mature fully and develop their varietal charters.Â
The grapes are then crushed, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks, to extract excellent colour and flavour.Â
When fermentation is complete the wines are pressed by our air bag tank press and maturated in oak a blend of French and American Oak for two years.
Upon maturation the wine is ready for blending and bottling.Â
White Wine Production
As with the red grapes all our white grape varieties are handpicked and processed separately.
The grapes are handpicked in the cool of the morning.
They are then crushed, destemmed and pressed in our air bag tank press.
The juice is then chilled and settled for two days, before being racked and fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks for approximately ten days.
After fermentation is complete the wine is racked and stabilised before its blended and prepared for bottling.
