100% Pinot Noir
Soil and microclimate: Granitic-sandy soil, low organic matter content and excellent drainage. Vineyards: The vines are managed through the espalier system, with a production of 2.5 kg / plant. For the correct vegetative balance of the plant, green prunings were applied to establish a good activity of the photosynthetic leaf wall, in addition to significantly reducing the grape production per plant. This wine was made from the blend of 3 vinifications of Pinot Noir from different plots of soil, harvested according to the desired characteristics - balance, acidity, freshness, good maturation, body and volume of mouth - to compose the ideal wine. Each one of the wines were prepared separately and later blended from tasting results. Harvest: Manual harvesting with selection of bunches in the vineyard. Winemaking: Once the ideal grape harvesting time has been decided, the grapes are hand harvested and transported in small boxes, in the shortest time, for their transformation into the winery, following the traditional vinification system with cold pre-maceration of 24 to 72 hours. After fermentation, the wine was stored on the surlies for another 8 months. After, the wines were blended from the definition of percentages and remained for another 4 months in the tanks. The malolactic fermentation was not applied, in order to preserve greater freshness, complexity and finesse to this wine.
