The grapes were harvested early morning before being de-stemmed and berry sorted. All the reds are Cold macerated for at least 48 hours before fermentation where during a combination of punchdowns and pump-overs are applied.

Time on the skins varied from a week to three weeks before all the free-run juice was drained separately from the harsher pressings. The Syrah is fermented and aged in a combination of older 500L French oak barrels and a 5 000L Cuvée Tronconique for 10 months before bottling.
