WINEMAKING: As these varieties ripen at different times, the varieties were all harvested and fermented separately. We conducted gentle ferment on skins, with twice daily pump-over of the juice over the skins to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin. At the completion of ferment, wines were individually pressed off skins; the Sangiovese & Mourvedre were held in old oak, the Shiraz & Merlot in tank. After 12 months maturation, the different varieties were blended and filtered prior to bottling.
