VINTAGE AND HARVEST
2013 was a balanced and dry year, with botrytis occurring fairly late in the region. Healthy bunches were harvested by hand in three phases, from the end of September to early October, with a second selection before de-stemming and crushing. This approach resulted in perfect phenolic ripening and a good balance between sugars and acidity.
Bunches were hand-harvested and gently destemmed. Must was extracted with traditional hand presses for a notably clean and intense taste.
