Grapes were picked and sent in refrigerated containers to our winery in the Colchagua V alley. Our key points are strict fruit selection using Vistalys technology. The grapes were either directly pressed or destemmed, crushed and pressed. Then we racked the juice for a natural decantation in stainless steel tanks. We fermented 100% of the clear juice in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the freshness of the fruit. No malolactic fermentation was done.
