Vinification: The grapes are harvested, de-stemmed and sorted by hand and then pressed and gravity-fed into vinification tanks. On the first day of fermentation during vinification, 10 to 20% of the liquid is removed from the tanks to increase concentration. Maceration takes about 22 days in the stainless-steel tanks at a temperature controlled. The last stage is alcoholic fermentation which takes around 10 days on average after which the wine is decanted in to barrels. The wine is then left to mature in the casks for at least 12 months after which it is filtered and bottled. After twelve months, the wine returns to the stainless-steel vats for approximately one month and is then gently filtered, bottled and left for a further 6 months to mature in the bottle.
