farming/cellar: regenerative farming with aspects of organic and biodynamic farming used, harvested when completely mature and put into small containers which hold up to 20 kg. When needed, the fruit is selected by inspecting each bunch individually in order to collect the very best. Within a few hours after the grapes have been harvested, they are transported to the winery and the pressing follows. The fermentation is conducted under a controlled temperature of 28° C following frequent and delicate pumping over. The steeping on the dregs of pressed grapes is medium long (about 200 hours). The new wine is put into stainless steel vats, where new malolactic fermentation spontaneously follows. Rests for 12 months in oak casks, and then in steel tanks. Afterwards follows a 2-month bottle-aging.
