Hand Harvest, selecting the best bunches and a second selection on the table. Cold maceration at 10°C for 6 hours with subsequent static settling. The first extraction from the tank in all our wines is without pressing (free run wine – vin de goutte – vino de lagrima – tears wine) after this first extraction the most remains 24 hours in cold maceration at 7°C for 24 hours with subsequent static settling therefore we get a clean and bright most ready for alcoholic fermentation at 16˚C to obtain the best of it’s primary aromas, finishing the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation into the Oak barrels. We submit the wine to a process of traditional Bâtonnage, as you know, is the periodic stirring of the lees during the time the wine is being aged on its lees. Bâtonnage essentially helps redistribute all these positive lees compounds into the wine. It also helps augment the lees influence as a way to extract flavor, aroma and texture. This wine stays for period of at least 6 months into French and American Oak barrels.
