Production note

There is a short cold maceration of the grapes (for 24 hours at 8-10°C), followed by fermentation with skin contact over 8-10 days at a controlled temperature of 24°C, with frequent pumping over in order to enhance and preserve the fruit aromas. At the end of fermentation the temperature is gradually elevated to 30°C in order to allow extraction of colour from the skins. The wine is aged in 350-litre barrels (100% French oak) for a period of 12 months before bottling.
