Production note

All the fruit is harvested by hand and picked in to large-surface area 13kg crates. The harvest is cooled down overnight to 8ºC in the winery’s grape refrigeration room. The bunches are sorted on a conveyor, de-stemmed, berry sorted by hand again, and crushed. All transfers of grape must are attained with the use of gravity, preserving the integrity of the wine. Cold maceration ensues for 3 to 6 days. The primary and malolactic fermentation is 100% indigenous.
