Full cluster pressed. Settling for 24 hour in stainless stell tank at 8ôC. Alcoholic fermentation with indigineous yeast in thermoregulated stainless steel tank for 45 days. Full Malo lactic fermentation for 2 month.
A very warm spring and summer brought the maturity of the fruits to 20 days earlier than average vintage. It was a fantastic vintage yet Martin stayed alert during the vinifications. The biggest stress was to look after the fermentation so they don't stop. Multiple control per days for Alocholic and Malo lactic fermentation. Finaly, an extra ordinary vintage bottled in April 2016.
