Fermentation

After several days of cold maceration the musts were allowed to warm up for fermentation to proceed. During the peak of fermentation the batches were pumped over a minimum 4 times daily to extract colour, flavour and tannin. On skins for 14 days.
Aging
Aged for 17 months in 3, 4 and 5 year old French hogsheads and 12 months in bottle before release.
