Winemaking & Aging
The grapes, previously de-stemmed, go through a pre-fermenting maceration at low temperature. Fermentation takes place in lagares with successive pressings by machine for 12 days, not exceeding 25ºC. The aging and malolactic fermentation occurs in French oak barriques for 22 months, before bottling.
