The grape harvest is totally destemmed, gently crushed and then placed in stainless-steel vats for a 3-to-4-week cold maceration, followed by fermentation with regular pumping over and devatting. Part of the Caladoc and the Syrah are
aged in oak barrels (40% of the final blend) over a 14-month period, the remainder is in stainless steel vats. The cellar master overseas the blending just before the wine is bottled.
