Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) he grapes are harvested by hand. In the ripening process, we aim for a hint of freshness with some acidity and slightly less alcohol than for the red wines. The harvest takes place over a one-month period from the last week of August onwards. Harvested into 30kg crates – grape selection takes place in the vineyard and in the chai (winery). After full destemming the grapes are pressed to obtain their juice and cold maceration is performed to extract the fruit aromas and achieve the desired pale colour. Vat bleeding techniques are rarely used. The wine is then vinified by the traditional method used for making white wine, with careful temperature control. The rosé is stored in concrete vats for 8 months before bottling.
