Production note

With alcohol fermentation the skins and juice ferment together and mixed 4 times per day to ensure the maximum colour and flavour is extracted. Pressing of the skins will start when the tannin: fruit balance is optimal, after which malolactic fermentation is inoculated. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks on different dosages of French and American oak staves. The wine is aged for another 6 months on the staves until the right fruit oak balance is achieved.
