The grapes were fermented in static potter and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and also 3-5 days post ferment maceration has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build wine structure.
Vintage 2007 followed on from an extremely dry growing season. This drought presented a number of viticultural challenges, with localised spring frosts causing the greatest concern. The already very low bunch numbers and very small berry size were reduced even further due to these frosts and this, combined with higher than average temperatures, caused the grapes to ripen nearly a month earlier than usual.
