CELLAR

The grapes after being destemmed were firstly cold soaked and then whole berry fermented to dry. The wine was then racked into French oak barrels for about 20 months. The bottled wine ages for another 20 months becoming well-balanced and available for consumption. To keep all the richness of color and taste the wine is not processed by intensive filtration or cold.

 

AGEING POTENTIAL

Ready for drinking now and will last for another 8 years getting more balanced. Decanting for 1 hour before drinking is recommended.
