CELLAR

The grapes after being destemmed were whole berry fermented to dry. The wine was then racked into new French and American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation for 22 - 26 months. The bottled wine ages for another 24 months before getting 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 complexity and finesse. Decanting for 1 hour before drinking is recommended.
