Winemaking: A small batch of grapes are picked and left to macerate in contact with the skins until the fermentation starts spontaneously with the wild yeasts, naturally present. Subsequently, this fermenting parcel is added to the rest of the must batch at room temperature, kick-starting the fermentation. This wild ferment comes to an end after 3/4 weeks. The wine is naturally decanted at a controlled, cool temperature. Ageing: Stainless steel for 6 months – bottle.
