Vinification and ageing
Grapes are picked into baskets and then delivered by tipper trailer.
Processing is by crusher/de-stemmer, with removal of damaged grapes.
Maceration of grapes and juice and alcoholic fermentation is in wooden vats for around fifteen days. Grapes are then pressed and assembled with free-run juice.
Ageing is in oak barrel until the end of malo-lactic fermentation.
Racking and light filtration before bottling.
During all these operations the wine is tested by an authorized laboratory and an oenologist.
