Description

All grapes are handpicked during the early morning hours and then cooled overnight in a temperature - controlled room at 5 °C. 70% of these grapes are then crushed and destemmed, whilst the remaining 30% is fermented as whole cluster. This is followed by a three day cold soak at 9 °C, covered with a CO₂ blanket. Natural fermentation takes place in open fermenters. Extraction is obtained by light punch - downs twice a day. After fermentation is completed, the wine is pressed to old oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation is completed in the barrel. The wine is then racked from the lees and given a low dose of sulphur. The wine spend a total of 10 months in the barrel before it is bottled, unfined and unfiltered.
