in the cellar : Hand picked grapes. Fermentation took place in rototanks and upright fermenters with the aid of selected yeast strains. Temperature was maintained at 25 – 30°C. The wine was racked and returned once a day, followed by 3 pump-overs per day. The wine was matured in 225 litre French- and Hungarian oak barrels for 13 months (38% new).
