The grapes were cold-soaked prior to fermentation. The fermentation was carried out at around 30°C, finished quickly and the wine racked off the skins without any post-fermentation skin contact. Half of the volume was then transferred to second fill French oak 225 litre barrels, with malolactic fermentation occurring in the wood, for about 6 months. The remainder was finished in stainless steel and the two elements eventually blended before bottling. The residual sugar was 3.8 grammes per litre and the total acidity was 5.6 grammes per litre.
This wine was sealed with a screwcap.
