The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness of about 24 to 25° balling. Fermented in
stainless steel tanks with four pump-overs daily for maximum extraction. Post fermentation maceration was conducted for four weeks on the skins. Wines were pressed and kept in tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wines were then put in barrel consisting of 85% new French oak for a period of 18 months before blending and bottling.
