Method & Production

Harvest is been carried out by hand towards the end of August. Each grape variety is vinified separately using native yeasts, in steel tanks at controlled temperature of between 30° and 33° C. The wine was transferred into barriques for malolactic fermentation. Assemblage of the three grape varieties takes place at the end of the malolactic fermentation. Afterwards the wine is transferred into oak barrique of which 22% are new, for approximately 12 months.
