Vinification

Starting with a cold maceration to give roudness and then a long fermentation at 32°C to extract the essential tannins whilst conserving the suppleness.

Ageing

The Cabernet is aged in oak barrels (a third French oak and two thirds American oak) for twelve months to refine the tannins and to bring a note of oak to the flavour as to accompany the force of this wine.
