The fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness in the cool of the night to preserve delicate fruit flavor and inhibit wild yeast fermentation. After crushing / destemming and inoculation with a pure yeast culture, fermentation took place in static fermenters with American oak. Thereafter, the wine underwent maturation for 12 months in new and seasoned American and French Oak before final blending and bottling.
