Fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to help retain the fresh fruit aromatics and flavours that had developed in the vineyards. The individual vineyard components that make up the final blend for this wine were kept on their lees to help build richness on the palate. The wines did not undergo malo-lactic fermentation in order to help preserve their vibrant acidity and freshness. The wines were racked off their lees and combined just prior to bottling.
