WineAll fruit were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The lion’s share of fruit was naturally co-fermented in tank, with each parcel added in stages so as to extend the length of the fermentation and enhance the flavour and mouthfeel. Then, a little lower Yarra Pinot Gris was destemmed and fermented on skins for 20 days to extract a little flavour, tannin and colour. After wild alcoholic fermentation the berries were pressed to old barrels to go through natural malolactic fermentation. There were no additions at all, save for a little sulphur at bottling.
