Winemaking

The grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe then destemmed. Maceration lasts 18-20 days with perfect temperature control and careful extraction of the aromatic and polyphenolic elements (pumping-over and delestage). When malolactic fermentation is complete, the wines are racked twice and blended. Then they are left to mature in vats for 8 months.
