IN THE WINERY

Grapes harvested when fully ripe are crushed and left to macerate for twelve hours at 8°C, in order to extract all the aromas. They then undergo soft pressing and low temperature (14-15°C) fermentation for approximately 15 days. Maturation takes place in steel on the lees, which are periodically pumped over (bâtonnage) to provide a soft, full wine.
