The Pinot Noir fruit was handpicked and transported to our winery in the Hunter Valley for processing. A portion of the fruit was crushed into small 2 tonne open topped fermenters with a portion of the fruit remaining as whole bunches. The fermentation took place for 10 days with plunging by hand 3 times a day. Following this, the must was gently pressed off and transferred to French oak barriques. After 9 months of maturation the wine was blended and bottled.
