The grapes are picked after extensive tasting in the vineyards to ensure only the ripest fruit is brought to the cellar. The grapes are crushed and destemmed and enjoy a pre fermentation cold maceration for 24hours. During the fermentation the grapes are pumped over 3 times per day for extraction of colour matter and tannin development. The skins are left on the wine for 3 weeks post fermentation before pressing followed by ageing in French oak barrels for 24 months in 30% new barrels, 40% 2nd fill and 30% 3rd fill.
