The region is renowned for longer and warmer ripening periods during autumn compared to other cool climate regions which present ideal conditions for Mediterranean varieties.

Machine harvested and transferred into open 1 tonne fermentation pots. Fruit was cold soaked initially for 7 days. Juice was inoculated with a suitable yeast culture, the cap was hand plunged twice daily, with a total maceration time of 20 days.
