Vinification method

The red varieties Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache, are vinified separately in temperature controlled tanks. Syrah is being vinified in oak casks, whereas Mourvedre and Grenache in stainless steel tanks.

Maceration lasts from 12-25 days depending on the variety. After maceration is complete, the wine is racked into oak barrels (75% French oak, 25% US oak) where malolactic fermentation takes place and it matures for 10 months. All barrels are new and there are being replaced every four years.
