After the harvesting of the grapes the must has been cold soaked for 7 days at a temperature of 7°C. Thereafter it was fermented for 8 days in open concrete tanks with 5 punch downs a day. Finally, the must was oaked for 12 months in French and European oak 30% new oak, 20% second fill and the rest an even split between third to fifth fill barrels.


Drinking well now, but perfect after aging for 3-7 years.
