Product Code:ME206A

Varietal Composition

100% Pinot Noir

Fermentation Method

Once the harvest is delivered to the winery hall, it is hand sorted in order to keep the best bunches of the grapes. After the destalking of the grapes, its juice, skins and pulp are put into the vat for 15-18 days. The prefermentary cold maceration starts during this period and lasts for 5-6 days, followed by an alcoholic fermentation. Cap-punching is made during this period in order to obtain complete and perfect maceration. The juice is separated from the rest of the must after the pneumatic pressing and the wine starts its aging during 12-15 months in new oak barrels (about 30%), in the oak barrel of 1 or 2 years (about 70%) as well as in the stainless steel vats.
