Winemaking
A wine of two halves. Picked when true GWZ “musk” characters evident into 10kg lugs, whole-bunch pressed to tank. Oxidative handling of the juice. Settled overnight before racking half to old barrique barrels and the other half to stainless steel tank for fermentation. Barrel ferments allowed to ferment wild, tank ferment inoculated with commercial yeast and fed nutrients to retain aromatic freshness. Stainless ferment racked and sulphured immediately when dry and stored in a sealed tank. 1/3 of barrel ferments allowed to undergo malo and the others sulphured directly after primary ferment – all were stirred and matured for 11 months for textural complexity. Barrels and stainless component then blended together March 2016 and allowed to sit over winter 2016 before bottling in the Spring 2016.
