Tech Details

Grapes are 100% hand harvested in small trays. The grapes pass through a selection table before and after de-stemming, then gravity fed to small oak tanks and fermentation barrels. After a cold maceration for 10 days, the alcoholic fermentation is carefully conducted at 26-28 ° C. Malolactic fermentation is made in barrels. The wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months. The best barrels of this block are selected by tasting and blended afterward. Bottling time has to be at least one year before release into the market.
