Vinification All the grapes are destemmed, and the wine-making takes place then in closed tanks, over a 2 weeks period. Extraction is made by daily pumping over. Fermentation temperatures are controlled and maintained between 82°F and 86°F/28°C and 30°C. After pressing and racking, malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
Maturing Following the malolactic fermentation, the wine is drawn off and kept in stainless steel tanks in our air-conditioned winery at a constant temperature of 59°F/15°C. This allows it to slowly refine its structure. The bottling takes place after 8 to 12 months of maturing.
