Ariel Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented and aged in the traditional red wine method; fermentation in stainless steel cooperage on the skins at temperatures above 24°C ( 75° F).
After fermentation, the wine is separated from the skins and a portion is moved into a combination of French and American oak barrels for extended aging. Just prior to bottling, the alcohol is gently removed by cold filtration.
