The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are hand harvested and are brought to the winery where they are pressed separately in whole cluster, taking the skins off the must. The varieties are vinified separately. The Chardonnay goes into 500L French oak barrels and Pinot Noir into stainless steel, where they are both fermented at a low temperature. Once alcoholic fermentation has completed, the wine remains on the lees for a period of refinement, at this time, periodic bâtonnage is carried out. After the tirage the wine will age on its lees for another minimum 30 months before disgorgement and dosage takes places.
