The grape blend was picked, crushed, destemmed & cold soaked for 24 hours. Fermenter bins were inoculated with RC212 cultured yeast. Primary fermentation lasted 10 days. The must was pressed & the wine was transferred into tanks. The wine settled for 2 days in the tanks before it was racked into barrels. The wine was inoculated with Vinoflora OENOS cultures to start the secondary malolactic fermentation.
