in the vineyard : The grapes of this blend are grown at different areas on various altitudes for complexity in the wine.

in the cellar : Fermentation was allowed on skins until fermentation was completed. The wine was drained from the skins and later blended with the pressed wine. Fermentation was done under controlled conditions at 26°C for six days. The wine
underwent malolactic fermentation after which the different varieties were blended together. This wine is not aged in wood, to maintain the fresh easy-drinking taste.
