The grapes are split into two different steel tanks. The grapes in the
first tank are de-stemmed and undergoes maceration for 2 days with
the skins, are racked off and added back to the same tank to finish
The second tank goes through 6 days of full cluster (with stems)
carbonic maceration, and is blended with the first tank for another
14 days of maceration. After manual pressing, the wine settles in the
same steel tanks for 8 months before bottling. No filtration, fining,
temperature control or sulphur added at any time.
