Wine maker notes
The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning. Once at the winery, a cluster selection was performed, followed by soft de-stemming so as not to break the berries, and berry selection. From the selection table, the berries were directly transferred to a 450-kg hopper, where they were received with dry ice to avoid oxidation and lower their temperature. The must obtained from this process was sent to a tank where the thickest lees settled by the sole effect of gravity at low temperature. After 24-36 hours, it was racked to first-use and second-use oak barrels, where selected yeasts were inoculated. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures for 22 days. After this stage, the wine was conserved on the fine lees of yeast, and battonage (stirring of the lees) was performed, once a week at the beginning and once a month after the second month. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 5-9 months, and bottled four months prior to release.
