The wine was made from perfectly ripe, hand-selected and harvested grapes from our own vineyards around Finca de San Rafael. The grapes were destemmed and then fermented in 12,000 litre stainless steel tanks at 28-30ºC. After a post fermentative maceration of 15 to 20 days, malolactic fermentation was completed. The wine was then racked to previously used barrels (40% American oak and 60% French) where it remained for two years. It was then bottled and aged for a further year in our underground cellars until being released to the market.
