Grape harvesting After hand-picking at optimal maturi-ty, the grapes travel to the winery in small boxes exclusively set for white grapes.
Vinification After pressing, the musts are given cold settling, and fermentation takes place in small oak barrels.
Maturing After fermentation in barrels, the wine is aged on its lees for between 6 and 8 months, with regular stirring to deve-lop flesh and richness. This will, in turn, give the wine ageing capacity. “Marquise de la Tourette” is then bot-tled after light fining.
