The fruit was hand harvested, destemmed, and the berries "broken" before being pressed to stainless steel tanks. Fermented on the fine lees, with no battonage for 8-months. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally and finished completely. A gentle cross-flow filtration was performed prior to bottling.
