Winemaking: The grapes used to produce this wine comes from vineyards between 15 and 100 years old, planted at an altitude of between 300 and 700 meters above sea level and on different types of soil; slate, clay or granite.The harvest is done manually in small boxes of 10 kg. Each variety is harvested separately. A first selection of grapes occurs in the vineyard, and a second is performed at the winery. The grapes are de-stemmed and each grain is selected. Maceration takes place over two days, before starting the fermentation in French oak open barrels of 500 liters and wooden tanks. The grapes are moved manually and are removed from the vats by hand. Subsequent malolactic fermentation occurs in barrels of 300 liters. Lalama is aged for 13 months in French oak barrels which have had several uses, it then spends seven months in truncated French oak and 16 months in bottle. Lalama is not filtered.
