Notes: In the winery, the grapes are processed in small quantities followed by their partial de-stemming and gentle crushing. Next, begins the fermentation process with extended maceration for some 10 to 15 days, in order to extract all the subtleties and aromatic flavors of the grape. To complete the extraction, a process of post-fermentation maceration follows for 21 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. For an added complexity of flavors, the wine is aged for 1 year in 3 to 4 year old barrels made of French oak and exotic wood. Lastly, the wine spends six months in the bottle in our cellar
