Grapes

Production

Grapes were harvested by hand in small bins during the third week of March from the region of Maipú, Mendoza, this Viognier wine is crafted with precision. After the harvest, the grapes undergo grinding and stem removal, followed by a cold maceration period lasting 4 hours. The fermentation process occurs at a controlled temperature of 15°-18°C in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then kept on fine lees until bottling, enhancing its depth and complexity. Notably, 20% of the blend is aged in French oak barrels for 4 months, contributing additional nuances to the final profile. The entire process is guided by the use of selected organic yeasts, ensuring a thoughtful and sustainable winemaking approach.
