Fermentation
Four fermentation techniques were used to make this wine. One portion was fermented in first-, second- and third-fill 300 liter French oak barrels. A second portion was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and a third in large, 3 000 liter old wood. The remaining component underwent carbonic maceration, with whole bunches left to spontaneously ferment, imparting lightness, freshness and fruitiness to the wine.
Aging
After completion of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine was kept on the lees for nine months before the final assemblage.
