Viticulture & WinemakingOnly the best grapes are hand sorted. Cold maceration process for six days, in order to extract all the aromas and flavours. Afterwards, in the alcoholic fermentation the temperature was raised to 28ºC. The fermentation was done in open tanks with regular punching down and pumping over during the fermentation, making sure not to extract in excess the tannins from the skin of the grape. Once the alcoholic fermentation was finished, 50% of the wine was transferred to French barrels of varying toasts and sizes (225l. and 400l.) for malolactic fermentation. When finished, the Pinot Noir was rested in barrels until blending, 9 months after the alcoholic fermentation had finished. Before bottling, the wine was carefully filtered.
Oak Treatment: 50 % of the wine spent 9 months in various sizes and toasted French oak barrels (225l. & 400l.).
