Winemaking

The grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe then destemmed and cold-macerated for the time required to achieve the depth of colour wanted. After pressing adapted to the different types of grape, followed by settling, the must is fermented at controlled temperatures to enhance the expression of the fruit. When alcoholic fermentation is complete, the wines are racked twice and blended. Then they are left to mature in refrigerated vats for 4 months before bottling.
