Natural malolactic fermentation at 16°C. Press wine cuts: membrane press was used and the pressing wines from 200 to 600 mbar have been added to enhance richness and body. 20% of the wine has been aged for two months with a variety of different toast French oak. No fining and cool tartrate stabilization. Filtered just by pressure filters with large diatomaceous (or kieselgur).
