Winemaking:
Hand picked grapes to small perforated boxes of 15 Kg, cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16 ºC. Very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. We made a great effort that all the pre-fermentation operations are carried out within the greater accuracy because it's responsible for the intrinsic quality of the future wine. This wine fermented in stainless steel vats, after which it was stabilized by cold, and remained in the cellar for three months after the bottling. Ageing in stainless steel vats until March, followed by 3 months in bottle.
