The grapes were harvested early morning before being de-stemmed and berry sorted. The reds are cold macerated for at least 48 hours before fermentation where during a combination of punch downs and pump-overs are applied. Time on the skins vary from a week to three weeks before all the free run juice is drained separately from the harsher pressings. All components were made and aged separately 12 months before blending and bottling.
