CLIMATE AND HARVEST
At the beginning of August we started selecting the grape bunches and left only the best and most evenly spaced. The others were cut and dropped on the ground insuring that the remaining bunches would mature in the best possible condition. The grapes were harvested by hand and were placed in plastic boxes of 15 kg each, which were then promptly transported to our winery.
VINIFICATION AND REFINEMENT
Upon arrival at our winery the grapes were gently pressed and the resulting must was immediately cooled and decanted naturally. After 24 hours the must was inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented between 60 degrees to 72 degrees Fahrenheit. The wine was bottled at the end of March 2003.
11-12ºC, 52 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit.
