Production Notes – The grapes are hand-harvested with strict sorting: first, on the vine, then by individual clusters, and then again grape by grape. The grapes are pressed under protective gas and the grape must goes straight down into the fermenter. On its way, the must passes a heat exchanger that cools it down to 10 – 12 degrees. The fermenter has cooling coils to keep the temperature constant. We use only the natural yeast found on the grapes’ skins. A few days before the main harvesting about 100 kg of grapes are being picked to start the fermentation with their skins. This is then sifted, and the fermenting must is then poured into the other fresh must, which encourages fermentation.
After the fermentation, the wine rests in the vats “sur lie” (on the yeast lees). This wine was bottled in June 2019.
