Winemaker Carsten Migliarina
The Grenache for this wine was sourced from Wellington.
The grapes were hand harvested at 23 balling. They were fermented at between 18 and 22 degrees for 7 days on the skins and malo-lactic fermentation was done in tank. The wine was matured in shaven French barrels to ensure micro oxidation and polymerisation of the tannins with minimal wood.
