about the harvest: Grapes were handpicked at optimum ripeness.

in the cellar : After harvesting the grapes were sorted, de-stemmed and gently crushed. The juice was chilled to 10-12ºC to enable cold maceration prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Daily pump-overs were carried out for flavour and colour extraction. Five percent of the wine was selected for malolactic fermentation on French oak staves before blending. The wine was bottled and allowed 6 months of maturation and integration.
