Grapes were harvested at 24ºB. Open fermenters were used. In order to optimise flavour and colour extraction, skins rising to the top were regularly brought in contact with the juice. Temperature was maintained at approximately 28ºC. At 5ºB, juice was drained from the skins and the fermentation process allowed to continue in closed tanks. Any juice remaining in the skins was recovered by using a gentle tank press.After fermentation was completed the wine was given two rackings and finished in 225 l French oak barrels for a period of nine months.
