The 2010 Vintage was hot and dry through mid to late Summer allowing for small berries within intense colour and flavour, giving high levels of ripe skin tannins.

After gentle crushing, the must was pumped into traditional open fermenters with twice daily pumping over and hand plunging. Fermentation continued at up to 26 degrees Centigrade ensuring optimum extraction of long chain, soft tannins.

Approximately 25% of the wine was run off skins to complete fermentation in new French Oak. The remainder received additional maceration to extract further ripe tannins from the skins.

Finally, the wine was racked off skins into settling tanks then into new and 1 year old French Oak and American Oak for 18 months.
