This wine has a surprisingly fresh mid-palate. Fermentation takes place on the skins for about seven days, after which it gets an extended maceration period of about one week. The wine then gets pressed into a combination of 70% new and 30% second-fill 300-litre French oak barrels. After malolactic fermentation, the wine gets racked and is then returned to the barrels for a total of 18 months before bottling.
Can be enjoyed from the year of release, with an ageing potential of up to ten years.
