The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.
Free run juice and pressings were fermented separately, the 2 wines were then combined, and a portion received some oak, it was left on partial yeast lees until racking just prior to bottling in October.
