Davishon Vineyard is trellised on a Geneva double curtain and spur pruned to 10 shoots per metre. It is extensively thinned to 6 tonnes per hectare and harvested by hand. Each clone of fruit was harvested separately and kept separate at all stages of vinification. The fruit (clones 5 & 115) was harvested on 7 & 8 April 2013 and destemmed into a 4T stainless steel tank to undergo a brief period of cold soak, before being inoculated with a selected wine yeast to carry out the fermentation. The wine was aged in French Oak barriques for approximately 10 months, of which 25% was new oak.
