Vinification

The grapes are carefully selected and vinified in the traditional bordelaise method with a long maceration of 11 – 14 days at 28 – 30°C. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is matured for over 14 months in barriques of French oak. Frequent racking from the lees allows for bottling without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in a slight sediment in the bottle.
