WINEMAKING “The grapes are harvested late in the season when dark fruit flavours and mature tannins are evident, then destemmed to small open fermenters, with yeast added and hand plunged twice daily. Once the ferment has finished, the must is drained and pressed into barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine is then matured in French oak hogsheads for 12 months maturation before being blended and prepared for bottling.” Warren Proft, winemaker THE LA ZONA SERIES Italian for 'the area', La Zona celebrates Chrismont’s heritage and the upper King Valley’s connection and affection for Mediterranean varietals
