Viticulture & WinemakingThe harvest started in the high zone in Tapihue on the 18th of March and finished in the Leyda Valley on the 22nd of April. The grapes were taken to the winery, cooled down and then selected manually to take away the leaves and grapes that were not in a perfectly ripe and healthy state. Cold maceration for approximately 24 hours. Then the fruit is pressed and the juice extracted is decanted to adjust its cloudiness to lower levels in order to allow a clean fermentation. There is a stage of contact with the finne sediments, in order to give the wine an oilier texture and better aromatic complexity. The wine is cold stabilised and filtered.
