The grapes are hand-picked at optimum ripeness. After fine de-stemming and crushing, fermentation is followed by temperature controlled fermentation (23-28°C) in stainless steel tanks. The wine was fermented using cultured yeast strains. Management of the skin and cap was performed by délestage and remounting. After 12-15 days of maceration, the wine was clean and transferred to malolactic fermentation and 9-12 months of aging in 225 l oak barrels. Maturation continues in stainless steel tanks prior to the bottling process, supplemented by maturation in bottles at optimum temperature before release.
