The varieties Tempranillo Syrah Roble Dominio de Fontana were picked, destalked and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at approximately 24°C. A post fermentation maceration took place, with the length of time being individually tailored to the extraction level of each tank. Tempranillo Syrah Roble Dominio de Fontana underwent full malolactic conversion, which resulted in a softer expression on the palate. 30% to 50% of the wine was transferred to mature in American oak barrels for four months.
