Winemaker's Notes

• Soils are a combination of lacustrine silty clay for the more structured masculine fruit, and  lacustrine silty clay over clay loam till for the more feminine fruit.  
• Yields of 3.0 tonnes per acre.  
• Berries are mechanically de-seeded with seeds added back as a further control on tannic structure.   Fermented in stainless steel utilizing pulse-air in conjunction with hand punch downs to gently manage the cap.
