Following pressing, each batch of juice was kept separate in 100% stainless steelĀ tanks. Each tank was then fermented using a variety of yeast strains, with around 8% fermented in a combination of new and old French oak. Once fermentation was complete, each batch was assessed for quality, with the best batches being blended together in preparation for bottling.
