Most blocks were separated into smaller ferments so multiple techniques could be applied to each parcel of fruit , e.g., completely destemmed versus 20% whole bunch. Each open pot fermenter was initially wrapped up in the presence of carbon dioxide to let the indigenous yeast do their thing ie, ferment . Once fermenting away, each pot got a gentle pump-over or plunge once a day until sugar dry. Some were pressed at this point, while others were left (wrapped up again) for an extended maceration. The overall blend has approx 10% whole bunch and was on skins for an average of 12 days.

From the rolling elevations at the Rising Vineyard in the Christmas Hills, winemaker Anthony Fikkers crafts wines that express both the power and grace of this unique part of the Yarra Valley. Sourcing small premium parcels of fruit from emerging varietals in the vineyard, Anthony's aim is to produce wines of beauty and clarity that are surprising yet authentic. Free and unrestricted in his winemaking approach and with a philosophy of minimal intervention, each wine is allowed to express fully its origins.
