vinication and development
Late harvesting, also performed by going back repeatedly to the same vineyard, picking the grapes as they reach the desired degree of over-maturation. After removing the skins, the sugary must is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation proceeds very slowly due to the high density of the must, until it comes to a halt naturally. The wine then develops for several months in third-passage French oak barriques.
