Hand picked in grape boxes

The grapes are firstly sorted in the vineyard then a second time to the cellar

50% of the grapes are destemmed, vinifier with indigenous yeats and by traditional punch downs followed by a very long maceration on skins during 9 months

The wine is then aged for 10 months in tank

The other 50% are crushed by feet, vinified in carbonic maceration for 6 weeks

The wine is then aged on French oak barrels for 18 months

Both wines are then blended together to obtain the complexity that we are looking for

This wine is unfined, unfiltered, with a minimal use of sulphites
