From the Vasse Felix Winemakers comments
Fruit was carefully tipped into an oak vat as whole bunches. The vat was closed up and filled with CO2 without a berry being touched for 8 days, causing an enzymatic fermentation in the berry. The fruit was then foot-stomped and allowed to start wild yeast fermentation. Following the completion of fermentation, the wine was drained, basket pressed and stored in older French barriques. The wine was carefully racked and bottled after 6 months.
