Fermentation is on skins in open top fermenters with subsequent maturation in predominately French oak barrels for 24 months prior to bottling. All the fruit is sourced solely from Shaw Vineyard Estate’s Murrumbateman vineyard, an area renowned for production of premium cool climate wines. Stelvin closures are used for freshness and to ensure long term quality.
