The Terra Rossa Merlot is made in limited quantities, and only in those vintages that are deemed to be outstanding.

The grapes were harvested on the 3rd April  using a Pellenc Selective Harvester; these state of the art harvesters not only harvest the grapes from the vine, they precisely de-stem the berries in the vineyard, therefore also macerating the fruit in preparation for fermentation.

The grapes were fermented in a 9T closed top fermenter for 9 - 12 days at a cool temperature to increase aromatic retention. Pump-overs occurred daily to avoid bitter phenolic extraction and all parcels completed malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. The wine was then barrelled down to a combination of old and new French oak for 1 year of maturation prior to bottling.
