Viticulture /Winemaking
The grapes were handpicked in two stages, with a weekly interval, in order to retain acidity and freshness on one end and richness and fruit on the other. Grapes arrive to the winery in 20kg boxes. Smooth pressing of whole bunches by pneumatic press to extract the best must, which is allowed to settle for one day at 7°C to decant the best juice. Fermented in steel vats at very low temperatures (12/13°C). The two lots were blended after completion of fermentation.
