Vinification

Grape destemming, cooling of the grape down to 10°C. We start to vinify the wine as a red wine, but after a few hours then we transfer the free run juice in another stainless steel vat to start the fermentation (this method is called Rosé de Saignée in French). Fermentation for 2 weeks at 16°C with selected yeast.

The wine is aged on its lees with regular “batonnage” for 40 days. During the ageing process we look at maintaining a maximum fruit expression and concentration thanks to regular pumping over.
