The fruit was picked at ideal ripeness and gently pressed. The juice was settled and racked off solids then fermented with a range of vessels, temperatures and yeast strains to give complexity of aroma and mouth feel. After aging on yeast lees with regular stirring, and lightly oaked, the batches were racked, blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
