The grapes were sourced from two different vineyards in Elgin specifically for its cool climate and good acidity.
The grapes were hand harvested at 23 balling and delivered in small lug boxes to the cellar. The grapes were then whole bunch pressed, a portion was fermented in tank and 60% fermented naturally in barrel. The total volume 100% was matured in 1st, 2nd and 3rd fill French, Romanian and Hungarian oak barrels for 11 months. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation to keep its freshness and primary fruit.
The wine was bottled on the 31st July 2017 and only 6895 bottles were produced.
