Thereafter the jice was transferred to stainless steel tanks and inoculated with yeast. At 3ºBalling the juice was pumped to 225 liter French oak barrels of which 20% were first-fill barrels and the remainder second and third-fill barrels. Thereafterf the wine remained in the barrels and for the first two months it was stirred once a week. For the following two months the wine was stirred once every four weeks.
