During fermentation the grape cap was pumped over several times a day to increase the depth of color and levels of extraction of the wine in the gentlest way possible. Before completing fermentation the wine was pressed out, and the free run wine was separated and used to make this wine. Malolactic fermentation was then encouraged and when completed the wine was racked into new and one year old French oak barrels for 12 months. Once the aging was complete, each parcel was individually tasted and the final blend of 82% Shiraz 12% Mourvedre and 6% Viognier was made. The blended wine was allowed to mature for a further 2 months in oak.
