Grapes are hand-picked in the morning hours,from 6.00 to 12.00, to avoid high temperatures. Vine picking takes place with the use of plastic boxes of 18kg which are then stored in refrigerated trucks to protect and preserve the grapes until they are delivered to the winery.
After thorough inspection at the receiving area of the winery, grapes are kept for 24 hours at 2°C. They are then stemmed and pumped together in the fermentors. Maceration lasts for approximately 12 hours and then the juice is extracted by “bleeding off”. The juice is cold settled and fermented with the addition of selected yeasts that enhance the aromatic character of the varieties.
