We have six different Cabernet Sauvignon clones on different sites that are aged separately; the finest performing clones are blended for the cuvee.
During alcoholic fermentation frequent pump-overs and aeration were done on the must to ensure good colour and soft tannin extraction which enhances the complexity, length and mouth feel of the wine.
