Harvest & Vinification
The grapes are hand-picked and carefully sorted. The grapes are destemmed and then lightly crushed. Native yeast fermentation. The grape varieties are vinified together, except for the Syrah, which is vinified separately because of its early maturity. Pumping over every 4 days allows a smoother extraction. Vatting time is 20 days at a temperature not exceeding 25°C. The wines are blended in January and aged in cement vats on fine lees for 18 months.
