Grapes for both wines were picked by hand, placed into small lug boxes and transported to the cellar in a cool truck. In the cellar, the whole berries were manually double-sorted and then gravity-fed into fermentors. Each batch was cold soaked for a few days and then slowly brought up in temperature. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in the barrel. The Cabernet Franc was aged for 18 to 24 months in 225 litre new French oak barrels, bottled unfiltered and bottle aged for a year. The Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 18 to 24 months in 90% new French oak, bottled unfiltered and bottle aged for two years.
