about the harvest: Vinification: The different cultivars were harvested at optimum ripeness and then fermented separately between 25°C & 28°C. During fermentation, skins that tend to rise to the top were regularly pushed down to optimize flavour and colour extraction. Any juice left in the skins was recovered with the use of a gentle tank press. Malolactic fermentation was completed on staves and the wines were then racked from the lees. After a period of barrel maturation it was blended and stabilized before bottling
