Harvest and winemaking

The grapes were manually harvested in 15 kilos open boxes on September 5th, 2018.

The grape harvest, at maturity and healthy, made it possible to realise the wine making process in optimal conditions.The wines were casked early October and matured in barrels for 9 months. They were then assembled to be bottled in July.

This first vintage is lace-like and on the subtelty of the tannins, the wine is refreshing. The ending is lingering and very appealing.
