The fermentation was kept cool to retain as much fruit complexity as possible. The fermentation temperature was between 22 – 26° C. Fermentation lasted 10 days with pump over three times daily. The wine was pressed into tank and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation, where after it was racked into 225 lit barrels for a further 23 months maturation.
