in the cellar : The perfect berries were picked at optimum ripeness, gently crushed and destemed, without damaging the berries and its pips, to protect all the fruit flavours. Controlled fermentation in stainless steel was applied to contribute even more to the above. After MLF in stainless steel, it was filled into 50% new French oak and 50% used French oak for a period of 12 months. A rough filtration was given just before bottling.
