The Grenache and Syrah were individually destemmed, sorted and fermented separately. The Grenache saw a short maceration period and was pumped over regularly in a stainless steel tank, while the Syrah was punched down by hand over three weeks of fermentation in a concrete tank. The wine was blended in late July of 2020 and bottled in November after a total of 12 months in the same puncheons.
