The fruit was brought in at 55 degrees and destemmed together in open-top fermenters getting 3 punch downs a day until native fermentation started. Then twice daily until dry and pressed after 12 days. Wines were racked into 3-year-old French oak barrels for four months where they underwent full malolactic fermentation.
