All fruit parcels were selectively machine harvested before being tipped directly into open fermenters or pumped into static fermenters for a few days soaking on skins. Once the ferments kicked in, we started plunging and doing pump-overs for subtle tannin extraction. The individual batches were fermented around 18-25 degees, pressed and then transferred into new and used French oak barrels for maturation. After 12 months in 20% new French oak the Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec was blended, fined and then bottled.
