Vinification:
The fruit was hand picked at the beginning of September and brought to the winery during the cool hours of the day. The juice was pressed gently in a new membrane press. After settling at a low temperature, the very clearest juice was fermented in low temperature for 4 weeks Thereafter, the wine was kept aging on its fine lees, a process which resulted in enriching the complexity and strengthening its tastes. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation in order to preserve its fresh character.
