Winemaking: The grape was well developed, reaching a balanced acidity. It was then introduced to the wine process and went through fermentation with temperature control (24-26°C.) with their skins, seeds, and pulp in order to extract colour and tannins. The wine aged 5 months in oak barrels. Afterwards it was filtered through sands and plaque filters.
