Hand-picked in the early morning so the grape clusters would remain cool and intact, the fruit was quickly brought to the winery where it was de-stemmed, crushed and placed in stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and pressed off the skins at sugar dryness. The wine was racked to 100% French oak barrels (50% new) where it aged for 20 months with three rackings prior to bottling.
