Production note

After careful hand selection, the bunches were gently de-stemmed. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks and lasted between 7 to 10 days. During fermentation the juice was pumped over the skin cap three times a day. There was post-fermentation maceration on skins between 7 to 14 days, before pressing. The wine was aged for 12 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels.
