Working the vine: We place great importance on respecting nature and the environment, and use environmentally friendly pest control. All of the estate’s plots are ploughed. To improve the yield, once pruned our vines are de-budded and thinned early, by hand. We may choose a green harvest.
Harvest method: Harvested by hand and grapes are placed in small perforated boxes. The harvest is sorted on a vibrating sorting table, and then by hand.
Winemaking process: This wine is made using 55-70 % whole bunches. The fermentation process begins using the naturally present yeast, following a pre-fermentation cold maceration process. Frequent pigeage, 3-4 times per day, to obtain maximum extraction.
Maturation: In oak barrels (30% new wood) for 16-18 months.
Bottling: We bottle our wines ourselves on the estate, with no fining or filtration, and according to the lunar calendar, producing wonderfully clear wines with the best possible flavours. 

Taste : 
The finesse of this elegant wine will delight your palate. It displays a wide range of red fruit and spicy notes typical of old vines Pinot Noir. The wine shows great complexity on the palate along with nice freshness.  It will readily express full potential even in its early years.
