Vinification details

The grapes are destalked and crushed, then fermentation for 18 days at 14°C. The grapes and juice are handled reductively to prevent oxidation and lock in the fruit flavours. Then left on the lees for 2 months to add complexity. The wine is then de-alcoholised by way of a gently spinning cone technology. This is done under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure that the product retains its distinctive wine body, colour and flavour. Finally, the base wine is infused with CO2 to create a stream of bubbles.
