Whole bunches were crushed, followed by cold soaking in tank for 48h prior to fermentation. Selected yeast strains were inoculated and fermentation took 10days in open fermenters. After fermentation were completed wine was rack to 300liter barrels for malolactic fermentation, the wine was then racked and returned to the same barrels where it aged for 16 months.
Barrel selection was done to ensure the complexity and balance of the final wine. Winemaker’s Comments: This is a modern styled Cabernet Sauvignon that shows elegance and finesse.
