Grapes were harvested by hand at optimal ripeness. Each vineyard was individually vinified. Once the grapes were crushed, the mash was cooled and fermentation took place for 5-10 days at 24-26°C. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in steel tanks, as well as 300 litre French barrels for 10 to 14 months, using a combination of new, second and third-fill French oak. The final blend was based on a meticulous barrel selection.
