Elaboration

A week before the harvest a pied de cuve is prepared in the vineyard, letting the wild yeast reproduce. When the grapes enter the winery, they are left in contact with the skins at a low temperature for 24h. Afterwards it is pressed and inoculated with the pied de cuve. The fermentation is carried out in a stainless steel vat. Before bottling the wine is clarified and lightly filtered, therefore sediments may form.

Tasting note

Interesting, slightly color between amber and pinky. Nose a bit phenolic, yet clean and precise. Firm on the palate with tannins and a balanced acidity level. Complex with some yellow apple, a zesty and mineral character, a light nutty sensation. Remarkably long finish in which spiciness and well-dosed tannins make you want to take another sip.
