Production techniques

  • Fermentation
    The hand-picked grapes are pressed and left to macerate for at least 8 hours whilst being left in contact with the skins to extract the flavours and aromas. Afterwards the clarified must is further fermented in French oak barrels of 1,000 litres at a temperature of 16-18 degrees Centigrade.
  • Maturation
    The wine stays for at least 6 months in direct contact with the fermentation yeasts before being able to be bottled.
  • Cellaring
    A further 3 months.
