These vineyards are all situated on South Westerly and Westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 100m-200m above sea level. All the vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system that allows for perfect containment of the sometimes vigorous growth habits of the Shiraz and Grenache varieties. Pruned to two-bud spurs, allowing for 16-18 bearers per running meter.
All cultivars were fermented separately in open red wine fermenters. The fermentation temperatures hovered around 26°C peaking at ±28°C. Regular pump overs helped with extracting intense colour and soft, pliable tannins. After fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked to 500l in French oak barrels with 20% new oak. The different components were aged for 12-16 months before blending.
