At harvest, the grapes are 100% destemmed and crushed before being placed in temperature controlled vats. Prior to fermentation, approximately 20% of the juice in each vat is siphoned off in order to increase the skin-to-juice ratio (this juice is then used to make rosé wine). Natural yeasts trigger fermentation and a twice daily regimen of pumping the juice over the skins begins remontage. The wine is racked every 3 months and therefore only needs a light filtration. Final blending and bottling takes place 18 months after harvest.
