The grapes are hand-harvested at first light in cool morning in small batches and carefully double-sorted. A cold maceration for 3-5 days encourages color before whole berries are fermented with wild yeast to increase depth, intensity and complexity. Gentle punch downs in small open-top tanks three times a day bring out Casablanca’s trademark deep color. Malolctic fermentation and aging in Frendh oak barrels enhances elegance and richness.
