This process begins by hand picking the finest grapes. Once selected, the entire cluster of grapes, along with dry ice, goes into a pneumatic wine press. This method allows for optimal extraction of floral aromas typical of these grape varieties. After that, a cold maceration is produced at 44.6 F°. Subsequently, the fermentation process begins at a low temperature. With a careful watch over the sediment to ensure optimal movement in our advantageously utilized small concrete tanks, along with 25% of the volume fermenting in first use French oak, this combination produces a complex wine.
