Viticulture & Winemaking: Produced using varieties of red grape best adapted to the local environment – among which the red Garnacha takes pride of place. Vines are selected for their moderate production and optimum conditions of ripening and health. The traditional Samsó (Carignan) and Syrah grapes usually make up the rest of the blend. Both the red Grenache and the Samsó are harvested by hand. Each variety of grape is then processed separately using traditional vinification methods under controlled conditions and a maceration time between eight and fourteen days. Following the malolactic fermentation, the varietals are tasted and the final blending carried out accordingly. The wine is left to settle gently before being bottled in the following springtime.
