Grape Varieties :
Cabernet Franc | Cabernet Sauvignon | Merlot
The carefully selected grapes were grown in the estate’s best vineyards at altitudes of 180 to 200 m a.s.l.. The different grape varieties were vinified separately; fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks for about 25-30 days at a controlled temperature never over 28/30° C.
The wine was then transferred into mainly new 225 l French oak barriques (Allier and Troncais) where malolactic fermentation was completed and it was aged for further 14 months. After the blending the wine undergoes least a further 12 months of bottle fining before the release on the market.
