“The joy of making wine from fruit grown on truly great sites is that as a winemaker, very little needs to be done to produce a superb result. In this sense, we see our role at Pressing Matters as guardians, simply guiding and shepherding the fruit through the winery. Put more succinctly, this can be summed up as ‘Not stuffing it up’! Whilst the new winery allows more flexibility, really our process remains the same as it was when we were making wine in our old vineyard shed: gentle handling, minimal intervention and an emphasis on preserving fruit vibrancy and freshness”.
