Vinification

The grapes were hand-picked in April and May, destemmed, crushed, and submitted to a 5-day cold soak to achieve maximum color extraction while avoiding excessive extraction of tannins. Fermentation took place at 24º–28ºC, depending on the lot and zone. 10% oak was used during fermentation to increase color set and stability in the wines. Once the fermentation was concluded, 20% of the wine was aged in French oak for 8 months to sweeten and increase the complexity.
