Viticulture and Vinification
Located at altitude, the young vines are harvested early in order to retain the fresh acidity levels in the grapes required for sparkling wine.
The grapes are pressed on arrival at the winery. The musts are then cleansed and cold stabilised for min. 24 hours. Fermentation is temperature controlled in order to preserve the aromatics. The wines are racked and left on fine lees before fining and filtering.
Méthode Charmat: The addition of sugars and selected yeasts to the wine at 18°C starts the 2nd fermentation in stainless steel tanks. These are equipped with an agitator so that the yeasts and sugars are kept in suspension.
