THE STYLE

Each year, high elevation, cool climate fruit is harvested at its optimum flavour/fruit acid balance. In 2009, 45% of the volume was barrel fermented on gross lees in new and one year old French oak barriques. These were left to mature for 8 months. 65% was fermented reductively in stainless steel with the aim of retaining the pristine fruit characters of the region. The aim is to promote the best flavours of the variety and the region and combine those with adorning winemaking techniques.
