about the harvest: Our vineyard blocks were harvested at different levels of ripeness to ensure complexity of flavour and fresh, delicate acidity.

in the cellar : 

The fruit was picked early in the morning to preserve aroma; kept cold, and pressed on arrival at the cellar. The resulting juice was treated reductively, while keeping oxygen out and preserving the delicate flavours. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures and then kept on the lees for a further 6 weeks to enhance mouth feel.
