After one day of settling and then barrelled in 400L French oak barrels. Natural fermentation takes place over the next 40 – 60 days with strict temperature control during fermentation. Once fermentation is complete the wine is matured for 10 months with monthly battônage of the lees. No malolactic fermentation. 33% 1st fill, 33% 2nd fill and 33% 3rd fill of tight grain with medium toasted barrels are used for maturation.
