Following harvest, the grapes were destemmed and then crushed to tank at which point the must was warmed and inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented during 10 to 15 days with temperatures peaking at 32ºC/90ºF. During fermentation, the vats were pumped-over twice daily in order to extract the ideal amount of tannin and color.
Following the completion of fermentation, the must was subjected to an additional five days of post-fermentation maceration to give an average of 19 days total skin contact. The wine was then pressed off skins and put to a mixture of new 50% and second-use French oak barrels 50% for 14 months during which time it was racked and returned three times. After bottling, the finished wine was carefully aged for three months prior to release in order to obtain optimum harmony prior to release.
