Grapes were whole bunch pressed in our pneumatic press on a champagne programme – very long and gentle pressing. 30% of the base wine was fermented in 3rd fill French oak barrels and allowed to go through malo-lactic fermentation, while the other 70% lay on the lees for 9 months before it was blended with the lightly wooded portion. After a controlled 2nd fermentation in the bottle to create the magical sparkle, an extended 26 month period of yeast contact to ensure maximum development.
