The wine was fermented with a combination of French and American oak staves to add complexity while respecting the natural fruity flavours of Colombard. Fermentation temperatures ranged between 16 - 18°C and lasted approximately 10 days. After fermentation the wine was aged on fine lees for 4 months to add body and structure.
