After fermentation, we stabilise the wine and age for several months on fine lees in tanks or barrels (the proportion of new and used barrels will vary depending on the type of the wine). During ageing we have the option to stir the lees in order to add body and extra depth of flavour.
Each batch is tasted throughout its maturation. A final blend is created for each wine (Estate, Vineyard Selection, Single Vineyard etc.) and bottling takes place. The wine is then further matured in bottle prior to release.
