in the cellar : Handpicked Shiraz grapes were transported to the cellar for immediate processing and pressing in order to avoid the over-extraction of colour and to ensure a light copper-pink colour. The juice was settled overnight and racked to stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was cold and slow in order to preserve flavour. Extended lees contact after fermentation was given to create a rich mouthfeel.
