Picked at optimum ripeness, these grapes are destemmed and undergo natural fermentation in large French-oak fermenters. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about 21 days during which gentle pump-overs encourage delicate flavour and colour extraction. Pressing of the skins when fermentation is completed, the wine is transferred to barrels for malolactic fermentation. The individual components of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend are kept separate for a period of 6 months before being carefully blended. Thereafter the blend spent 12 months in 2nd and 3rd fill French-oak barrels.
