Vinification Details

  • The grapes for this wine are hand picked in the Las Hijuelas vineyard. At the winery, the grapes are lightly crushed before transferring to a tank for a short cold maceration of the whole grapes before progressing to warm fermentation. This progresses over seven days and is followed by a malolactic fermentation after separating the wine from the grape skins. After fining the wine is cold stabilised to remove tartrates and then fine filtered for bottling
