    Vinification: Grapes are handpicked and transported in small crates which are placed in cold storage for 20 hours.

Cold maceration for two days, alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures 25-28°C, temperature being allowed to rise gradually as the fermentation proceeds. After a maceration period of approximately 12 days and following the completion of the alcoholic fermentation the wine is transferred to French oak barrels.
