about the harvest: The grapes were hand and machine harvested from a selection vineyards late January 2012.

in the cellar : The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and pumped to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place on the skins. During fermentation, the wine was pumped over every 2 to 4 hours (depending on the stage of fermentation). After pressing, the wine was pumped to the malolactic fermentation tanks, where fermentation took place either with or without wood alternatives (like staves or chips) depending on the structure and the fruit of the wine. We want too keep as much as possible fruit in the wine and not to dominate it with oak flavours and aromas.
