Vinification process:
Grapes are de-stemmed and not pressed. The juice is separated from the skins in a pneumatic press. The must is refrigerated at a temperature of 10C (50F) for 12-24 hours and is allowed to decant naturally by gravity. After racking, selected yeasts are added in order to initiate the fermentation process which is carried out at a controlled temperature of 16 18C (61-65F) for about 8-10 days. After a second racking the wine is left on the fine lees for about 3-4 months, which contributes to the body and suppleness of the wine.
