The grapes were hand-picked in the cool of early morning. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and inferior berries were carefully removed. Grape bunches were gently destalked. Fermentation took place in both 3-ton and 7-ton, open-top stainless steel tanks. The wines were pumped-over and punched-down manually 3 to 5 times per day ensuring maximum colour extraction from the skins. After primary fermentation the wines was left on skins for an additional 7 – 14 days before pressing. Each variety is maturated separately (micro-vinified) in oak barrels before blending and eventual bottling.
Ageing: 14 months in 300 litre French Oak barrels.
