The Magic Of Winemaking

Each wine maker will usually tell you that his or her methods are the best and in the end should be the only way you grow and produce wine.

When you discover the different soils and how it effects the grape, the slight sloping of a vineyard, even the plants density to each other. All adding to the final taste!

The difference in taste of a mature grape at the beginning of a row and a grape only a few meters away. This in turn means that when the harvest is ready, the pickers have specific instructions from the Vineyard Managers of where they should pick, down to the last 30 cm! Different areas each day so the grapes can grow to maximum flavour.  Later at the blending stages, you have up to twenty different parcels of wine that can be blended into the wine we drink.

But every year there is a slight alteration in how vineyards grow the grapes, always hungry to find the best yield.

Truly magical!
