Then the juice was fermented during 9 to 10 days at an average temperature of 26 º C (78.8 º F), using different yeast strains. A 20 days post fermentative maceration allowed enhancing the flavors and bouquet, as well as smoothing the tannins.
Ageing/Maturation: The wine matured in French oak barrels during twelve months while the malolactic fermentation went through. After this final stage, it was gently filtered and bottled.
