Vinification & Aging: The grapes are harvested between the last week of September and the first of October. They are hand-picked and kept at a temperature-controlled level of 30.2° – 32° F (cryoconservation). Then, the grapes go for pressing with dry ice and sent for maceration over the skins for 7 days. The fermentation process takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 68-71° F. During fermentation the must is separated from the skins and these go for pressing. At the end of the fermentation process, the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 57-59° F for 6 months. Then, the wine is bottled and aged for an additional 3-to-4-month period prior to its release.
