ageing : This wine is ready to be enjoyed now, or can be cellared for four to six years.

in the cellar : Grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness. After de-stem, the grapes were cold soaked for two days to extract more fruit and enhance colour. The wine was then inoculated with specially selected yeast strains and fermented until dry. Free run juice was racked to barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked from the lees and returned to the barrel for further maturation. Following maturation, the wine was blended, filtered and bottled.

The wine was matured for 18 months in oak barrels - 85% of French origin and 15% American.
