Alcoholic fermentation with select yeasts for 10-12 days at 26-28ºC, with controlled pumping over and punching down for maximum extraction. Total maceration time of 2 weeks. 30% of the wine was kept in contact with French oak of varying degrees of toasting for 6 months to respect the fruit and wine freshness and achieve optimum integration.
