The wine fermented naturally. The wine was pressed off the skins before alcoholic fermentation was completed to prevent the extraction of hard and dry tannins. Malolactive fermentation lasted 3 weeks in the barrel; where after the wine was racked and placed back into barrels for maturation. The wine was racked twice during its 18 months in the barrel.
