The grapes went into cold storage overnight before being de-stemmed and crushed straight into the press. The free run and first press juice was kept separate from the heavy pressed juice. After 2 days of settling at between 11-14C, the juice was racked of its lees and inoculated with a carefully selected cultivated yeast. Fermentation took place at 18C for 2 weeks.
