At Pentâge Winery our mission is to produce world-class wines. Viticulture practices from pruning right through to harvest will determine the characteristics of the wine – this is why our low-yield, hands on approach in the vineyard is critical.
In the winery, the grapes are sorted prior to being de-stemmed and sorted again, if needed, after the de-stemmer and before processing. As we strive to produce premium wines our grapes are gently pressed and fermented at controlled temperatures with select yeasts. As a small producer we are able to inoculate small batches, of the same variety, using different yeasts. Once fermentation is complete we then blend them back together – this adds complexity and uniqueness to each wine.
With the use of modern wine making equipment and techniques – Paul believes minimal intervention throughout the wine making process ensures extremely stylistic wines. Our philosophy has remained the same from day one – produce wines that reflect excellence, which are elegant and well balanced world-class wines.
Our attention to detail with regards to the vines, winery, yeast selections, specific barrel cooperage, winemaking techniques and equipment is essential in our continued success.
We hope you enjoy our wines as much as we have enjoyed making them.
