Ratings & Reviews
Vinification

On arrival at the cellars, the grapes were pressed, destemmed and cooled to 18°C and the must was allowed to ferment at its own pace. Only natural yeasts were used during fermentation. After racking in mid-November, the wine remained in an underground cement tank where the temperature did not exceed 10°C until bottling.

Aging

After fermentation the wine was aged for 6 months in cement/stainless stell. After bottling we let the wine rest for at least 4 months. No wood is used.
