Wine Description

After de-stalking and crushing, the focus during the three week maceration period is on color and extraction. Two "delestages” per day are necessary (emptying the fermenting juice from the vat and pumping it back on to the solids). After racking and malolactic fermentation, the wines are blended and aged in vats on the lees with controlled oxidation.
