The Winemaking

Our winemaking technique is simple; an expression of purity of fruit; we hand pick at optimum ripeness, crush, and ferment with a proportion of whole bunches depending on the season. The whole bunch component adds an alluring fragrance (perfume) to the finished wine, which is hand plunged in open top fermenters.

Our fruit, handpicked by the family, travels 52 metres from row #1 of The Cutting vineyard to the winery.

Following a gentle basket press off skins, wine is transferred to a combination of new and used French Oak barrels to mature for 14-16 months. After maturation, the wine is racked to bottling, unfined and unfiltered.
