Grapes are closely selected in our vineyards before harvesting and in our sorting tables. The Harvest took place by hand on late august and early September 2017. After destemming and pressing the grape bunches, each grape variety ferments on its own in stainless-steel vats at 20ºC with temperature control for 15 days. After the malolactic fermentation ends, the blend is done. The wine is then aged in American and French oak for 19 months and it then spend 2 more years in the bottle. This wine has been filtered and clarified before bottling. It will evolve positively for more than 10 years.
