Though Stonehaven can process 10,000 tonnes of fruit every vintage, each vineyard block can receive individual treatment. Fruit can be soft pressed in very small batches to fully capture regional characteristics.
Through a specially designed computer program, every stage of the winemaker's craft can be managed with a precision previously unknown. Fermentation can be controlled to maximise varietal flavours. Reds are tasted twice a day and whites once a day to monitor their progress.
The result is superbly crafted wines. Perfectly matched to contemporary tastes. Singular expressions of the winemaker's art.
