  • Wine Making

    The estate-grown grapes are destemmed, crushed and partially cold macerated before fermenting in wooden casks at a controlled temperature of 25-28°C for approximately 3 weeks. A regular remontage is carried out. The wine is then transferred partly to new, partly to used oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and a 12 months' ageing.
