:The fruit was pressed off as quickly as possible to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration following harvesting. After settling the juice was fermented using selected yeast in 100 per cent stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness.
:The fruit was sourced from two vineyards, one in Dillons Point and the other on Thomsons Ford Road. During ripening the grapes were carefully monitored and subsequently harvested in the cool of the evening with maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness
