Vineyards and Winemaking
The fruit was harvested, then destemmed and crushed directly into stainless steel fermenters for fermentation with Rhone isolate yeasts. After pressing and malolactic, the wine was transferred to a mixture of new and seasoned oak barriques for maturation. After 20 months maturation on light lees, the wine was blended, lightly egg white fined and filtered before bottling.
