Winemaking Grapes are manually harvested into 300-kilo bins and taken to the winery. Upon arrival, clusters are placed along a sorting conveyor belt and, once de-stemmed, grapes are placed in concrete vats. Winemaking per se begins with cold maceration, followed by alcoholic fermentation and post-fermentation maceration for 20 days. Forty percent of this wine was aged in French oak barrels for 6 months, while the remaining 60% was left unoaked so as to highlight its fruity flavors and aromas and best preserve the soft, silky feel of its tannins. This wine was filtered before being bottled.

Vanilla and chocolate hints are also perceived, which tell the story of its aging in oak.
