Grapes were hand-picked at optimum ripeness before being de-stemmed, crushed and pressed after a short period of skin contact. The juice was allowed to settle before fermentation which took place between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius in 500-litre second-fill and third-fill French oak barrels. Barrels were topped up and the wine was allowed lees contact for 8 months prior to blending and bottling. Before release, the wine was bottle-matured for 3 months.
