Winemaking

After extensive sorting, the grapes were transferred by gravity as whole clusters into stainless steel tanks for fermentation by non-selected yeast. During fermentation, only punch downs were employed for extraction and fermentation kinetics. After 34 days, the free run wine was taken off the skins and transferred to 228L barriques for aging.

Aging

The oak regime consisted of 95% neutral French oak and 5% new French oak barrels. After 18 months of aging, the wine was racked out of barrel into stainless steel tank for settling.
