Bunches are destemmed into open top fermenters, musts are inoculated and vinified at 22ºC to 25ºC, ferments are pumped over twice daily until complete sugar dryness. Upon completion, batches are held on skins for a month of maceration, followed by pressing and racking to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
