Production note

Perfectly ripened grapes are hand harvested. The bunches are quickly carried to the cellar where grapes are destemmed and left to ferment and macerate for 15 days. After racking the wine is matured in 225lt French oak casks for 12 to 15 months. It is then blended in stainless steel vats and finally matures for 5 months in the bottle.
