FERMENTATION

After careful selection the freshly picked grapes are taken to the cellar. Here soft pressing is followed by an immediate lowering of the temperature to improve decanting and the removal of suspended matter in the must. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a constant 10°C. 

Once fermentation is finished, the cloudy wine is put into perfectly clean tanks to clear. Around January, the wine is removed from the heavy lees and put into barrels of 30hl capacity wood. The aging takes place in wood with continuous “riddling” for about six months.

In February, the wine is clarified, filtered and bottled.
It is ready for sale in March following the harvest.
