Cold skin maceration was carried out for six hours, the free run juice was then fermented in stainless steel tanks for two weeks at 12°C. The wine was left on the gross lees where batonage was applied for a week. The wine was thereafter racked and left on the fine lees. Just before bottling the wine was sweetened up with Chenin Blanc juice.
The vineyards lie in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.
