Vinification Details The grapes arrive at the winery very early in the morning, and the bunches are immediately inspected and destemmed. The grapes are then deposited into a tank for a cold maceration at 7º–10ºC for 10–12 hours to allow aromatic characteristics to be transferred from the Sauvignon Blanc skins to the must. The juice is then racked off the skins and transferred to a tank for static decantation. After approximately 12 hours, the clean juice is separated from its coarse lees and transferred to the de-nitive fermentation tank. The must is inoculated with selected Saccaromyces cereviciae yeasts, which have historically given us very good results in maintaining the varieties typical aromas. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at 10º–11ºCand lasts approximately 21 days. Once the fermentation process is complete, the new wine is sulphited and racked off its ¬ne lees. The wine has no contact with oak at any point. The wine is later protein stabilized with minimal doses of bentonite clay and statically cold stabilized to allow excess tartaric crystals to precipitate out. The wine is then ¬ltered with sterile membranes prior to bottling to ensure a long and healthy life in the bottle
