Technique

The organically grown grapes are hand-picked the third week of March. After the crush, the must is transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a cold soak before undergoing alcoholic fermentation. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation which took place naturally by controlling the temperature to complete the process. 20% of this wine is aged in French oak barrels for 6 months, then blended in order to obtain a more complex character.
