Vinification Details

Grapes were cold-soaked for 3-4 days prior to being crushed and fermented at optimal temperatures, after which it was pressed and Malo-Latic fermentation was done in tank on French oak staves. The wine was then racked to 225L French oak barrels for a 24 months maturation process, before being lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
