"Hand picked on the very sunny morning of 27th of March by a crew of long-suffering friends and family accompanied by 2 very cute dogs. A perfect season to begin growing grapes, we had half a hectare of perfect fruit with not a single berry lost to rot. 

In the winery, we removed the stems to leave whole berries of which we footstomped just under half to release enough juice to get things a bit sloppy. Within a few days, the natural yeasts had begun to take effect and fermentation was underway. A very gentle extraction was encouraged with regular hand plunging, followed by a short maceration on the skins.

The skins were basket-pressed on the 14th of April and the wine put into seven beautiful old barrels to rest up until we bottled on the 8th of October."
