Grapes were cold-soaked for two days after which traditional skin fermentation commenced. After completion of alcoholic fermentation wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine underwent wood maturation on staves during malolactic fermentation and it was kept in contact for three months.
The 2018 harvest was challenging being one of the driest seasons in recent times. The night temperatures were low overall with exceptionally cold weather conditions. The vineyards generally showed good and balanced growth without being excessive or too vigorous. In most cases the water supply was sufficient while the ripening period was cooler and drier than usual. The grapes reached good acidity and lower pH levels and managed to accumulate sufficient sugar levels. The season was characterised by healthy, full-flavoured grapes.
