Method & Production

Contrada PC comes from a small parcel of Chardonnay vines, grown on steep terraces at about 900 meters above sea level. The grapes are carefully selected and hand-harvested in the first couple of weeks of September. They are de-stemmed and cold-soaked for 12 hours, after which they are pressed and transferred to large oak for fermentation. A naturally occurring malolactic follows in barrel. After one racking the wine goes back into barrel to age on the fine lees, for a minimum of 6 months. The wine refines in bottle for 1 further year following that.
