The fruit was picked at perfect ripeness and fermented in small stainless steel tanks. The ferments were aerated early on to provide color, supple tannins and mouthfeel. Once fermentation was complete the new wine underwent an extended maceration on the skins to further develop structure and complexity before being pressed off to barrel. Both primary and secondary fermentations were completed with indigenous yeast and flora.
