Overview

The 2020 growing season started off being quite warm to start off with and then developed into a typical mild day and cool night pattern in the all-important last two months of the growing season.

Picked at optimal ripeness before crushed into a 10-tonne open fermenter. The fruit was then cold steeped for 3 days before primary fermentation was allowed to kick off. The skins were gently turned over once every 24 hours for 7 days before it was pressed out via our basket press. The wine was then transferred to older French oak Puncheons for 10 months before bottling.
