The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. The wine aged on the lees for 14 months with occasional stirring. The alcoholic fermentation was short, whereas the malolactic fermentation was swift to obtain a wine that is simpler and to boost ageing potential. The wine is racked by gravity and then blended in stainless tank.
