Terroir

Volcanic.
The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm and sunny with alow rain fall.
Winters are mild, summers are hot and usual drought conditions fully matured the grapes.
Concerning the culture: vines are ploughed. We do not use weed killer. Pruning is short to regulate the vine's growth and its grapes yields.
The vines shoots are tied up along vires to be given the favorable angle to ripen the grapes.

Vinification

The grapes are picked up by machines at the best maturity. Picked up early in the morning to avoid that warmness oxidizes grapes
The stalks are taken off. Maceration lasts up to 13 hours at 7°C. Fermentation is quite long. The product is stabilized in the cold (-6°C).

Ageing

Oak fermentation: the wine is barrel fermented.
The wine is bottled at the domain and stocked in piles in an appropriate cellar.
