Vinification and ageing

After a careful selection  in the vineyard the grapes are de-stemmed and pressed. The alcoholic fermentation begins without the addition of selected yeasts and proceeds at 28°/30°C. The entire process of vinification and maceration take place in stainless steel tanks for approximately 35 days with pumpovers and manual punchdowns. In December the new wine is racked to a cement egg of 6,5hl where the malolactic fermentation takes place. After ageing for 12 months the wine is  bottled. The wine is aged for a minimum of 8 months before sale.

Sensory Profile
