VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Hand-harvested

• Rigorous grape sorting before the crush

Whites:

• Direct pressing
• Settling of the juice for 12 hours then racked directly into 228-L oak barrels
• The percentage of new oak and the length of aging depend on the vintage

Reds:

• Percentage of de-stemmed grapes varies from year-to-year. 2009 vintage is 30-40% de-stemmed.
• Traditional vinification in stainless steel cuves
• Daily punch-downs
• Maceration lasts from 10-15 days
