The grapes are berry selected on sorting tables before whole berries are fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks at 30o C for 3 weeks on the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine of about 14.5% alcohol matures for 18 months in 228ℓ small French oak barrels.
Style and maturity: On release the Cabernet Franc shows a deep ruby mulberry colour and intense bouquet with scents reminiscent of bell pepper, red berries, spice and cigar box. A wine of ample structure fills the mouth with concentrated fruit and berry sensations.
