Grapes are handpicked and cold soaked for 24 hours. Fermentation is initiated with selected yeast strains and is kept under 26°C. Malolactic fermentation is completed in tank and the wine is matured for 6 months, using French and American oak. Prior to bottling the alcohol level is reduced to less than 0.5% ABV as gently as possible through a specialized process.
