Alcoholic fermentation begins naturally using only indigenous yeasts and the wine went through full malolactic fermentation. After the completion of malolactic fermentation, the components were blended. No sulfur additions were made at any point during the vinification process.

Maturation: Aged in stainless-steel tanks for 6 months. Bottled without fining or filtration.
