Production note

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