The Carmenère grapes are harvested in 500-kilo bins. Once de-stemmed the grapes were carefully crushed.
The fermentation process takes place in stainless steel vats, at temperatures ranging between 28º and 30º C. for a 7-day period. The wine is then left to macerate for four additional days, in order to extract its varietal features.
