The grapes are harvested in March at 21–23° brix and picked at night to protect
their natural characteristics and avoid oxidation of aromas. Yields are 12 to 15
tons per hectare.
The grapes are processed immediately upon arriving at the cellar, where they
undergo a short 4–6-hour cold maceration at 10º–12ºC (50º–54ºF). The grapes
are pressed and separated into first- and second-run juice, reserving the option of
later blending. The must is decanted in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures
(11°C / 52ºF) for 24 to 48 hours. The clean must is racked off and inoculated with
selected yeast. The 20-day fermentation process takes place in stainless steel
tanks with controlled temperatures below 14°C (57ºF) to develop and preserve the
citrus aromas and fruit intensity of the variety plus it fruit intensity.
