The grapes are strictly hand-harvested to remain intact. Then, they are transferred to the winery in a refrigerated truck and are chilled to below 10 0C before they enter the pneumatic press. There, after being destemmed, they are left to cold soak for 4 days at 10 0C in order to maximize the extraction of color and aromas from the grapes in a gentle way. Fermentation lasts for 2 weeks at temperatures that do not exceed 26 0C, while pumping over is used for color extraction. Malolactic fermentation takes place in the tanks before the wine is transferred to oak barrels, where it will mature for 6 months in 300 lt medium grain and white toasting French oak. After that time, the wine will age in the bottle for 12 months before being released into the market.
