Description of production:
Grapes are harvested in 10 kg box and the harvest is done manually.
Grapes are harvested at the moment of full ripeness.
Pressing is done without crushing the grapes, whole grapes are pressed (as in the champagne region), in order to avoid phenol extraction and get as pure and soft juice as possible. The juice goes to natural sedimentation in stainless steel tanks.
After sedimentation, the pure juice is transferred to wooden vessels 300 L for fermentation. After fermentation, the wine remains on the total yeast sediment for 10 months without racking (battonage method) to improve complexity, fullness, balance. After 10 months aging, we do blending, the wine is bottled and remains in the bottle for at least 6 months before being placed on the market.
