Harvest

Grapes from our biological vineyard are harvested by hand to small cases.

Winemaking

The grapes are cooled down on a cooling house for 24 hours, are then destemmed and transferred to marble lagares, where they are foot trodden before and during the alcoholic fermentation. At 2/3 of the alcoholic fermentation process the must is racked with skins to stainless steel tanks where the fermentation ends, and it’s followed by a 10 days maceration. After pressing and MLF the wine is racked to oak barrels.

Ageing

12 months in first and second year American and French oak barrels.

"This year, it seems tightly wound, concentrated and still beautifully structured. The tannins are always ripe, never hard, but they are there and provide support."
Robert Parker in Wine Advocate - 29th July 2022
