Region: Eden/Barossa Valley, Australia
Winemaking: Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Viognier grapes were harvested in the cool of the morning, with each parcel picked and vinified separately except for Viognier and Shiraz which were cofermented. In the winery, the best grapes were selected using a sorting table and selective technology before being destemmed and lightly crushed into small open-top fermenters, either concrete or stainless steel. Fermentations were controlled with a combination of punch-downs and pump-overs twice daily, allowing the liquid to be cooled via a heat-exchanger. After 7-10 days and just prior to reaching dryness, the fermentations were pressed to barrel with the primary fermentation finishing in French oak hogsheads (5% new and 95% seasoned). After 10 months of maturation the wine was blended and bottled.
