The fruit for this wine was harvested from vineyards with careful row selection yielding the best possible parcels for use in this blend. The fruit was harvested within the range of 13.5 to
14.0 Baume, once it had developed a full intensity and complexity of flavours, embodied by a full rounded tannic structure, important for mouthfeel and long, complex flavours on the finish.

The winemaking aim was to let the quality of the fruit speak for itself. To this end, after crushing, the fruit was fermented on skins in temperature-controlled vessels to allow for an even and steady rate of fermentation, this resulted in an excellent depth of fruit flavour and colour extraction. The winemaking process was completed with the assessment and grading of all the separate components before oak maturation and assemblage of the final blend.
