Vinification:
Grapes are hand-picked at the optimum of their maturity. After Soft de-stemming and crushing, two varieties are fermented separately at controlled temperature (23-28°C) in stainless steel tanks using selected yeast strains. Color and body extraction is managed by délestage and remontage. After 8-10 days of maceration, the wine is racked clean, transferred for malolactic fermentation. 90% of it is aged in stainless steel tanks and 10% in French oak barrels for 4 month. The Final blend is made after 5 month. Minimal filtration and bottling competes the process.
