The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with a long maceration according to tastings and daily analysis. After the malolactic fermentation takes place, the wine is then transferred to a mix of American and French oak casks to mature, for up to 22 months, before being bottled. Once bottled, it will remain in our cellars to continue its maturation prior to release to the market.
