The grapes were harvested in mid-October exclusively from the Lakeshore Farm Vineyard to the northeast of the winery. After manual sorting the grapes were crushed and destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with regular delestage to gently extract colour and structure. After 30 days skin contact, the wine was pressed and moved back to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation and aging until it was bottled in September 2021, following light fining and filtration.
