The 2015 harvest was one of the best in the last few years. The weather conditions were optimal during the vine cycle and there is excellent quality shown across the vineyards.
Grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days with temperatures between 26-28°C. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is placed in American and French oak barrels for 13-14 months.
