In the cellar: The grapes were whole bunch pressed and only free run juice was used for the final blend. Selected yeasts were used for primary fermentation and the wine underwent malolactic fermentation of which 5% was done in barrel. It was bottle fermented at a cool temperature to enhance the varietal characteristics. The wine was matured on the lees for 36 months before disgorgement.
