Grape Varieties :
After the grapes were harvested, 50% are subjected to direct pressing i.e the whole cluster placed directly into the press. The remaining 50% was gently crushed and placed in cold maceration for six hours at 40°C.
The fermentation process takes place in stainless steel vats, at temperatures ranging between 16° and 18° C. for a period of 18 to 22 days. It is then kept on its lees (yeast and fermented solids) for 45 days.
