The grapes were harvested towards the end of February 2001. The day before harvest a starter culture of yeast was made up and introduced to the bulk of the grape mash straight after de-stemming. The must was punched through about six times per day and fermented dry in only 48 hours! After malolactic fermentation the wine was matured in second fill French oak for eight months before being bottled on the 18th of January 2002.
