about the harvest: The summer was a challenging one with high temperatures and dry conditions. We left more leaf in the canopy to protect the grapes and gave supplementary irrigation to help the ripening. We were able to harvest at optimal ripeness maintaining fruit and acidity.

Yield: 7t/ha

in the cellar : The grapes were destemmed and only the free-run juice was used. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 14 days where after fermentation was stopped by cooling the juice to 6˚C. The wine spent 2 months on the lees.
