In September, the Chardonnay and Sauvignon vines are fully defoliated around the clusters to ensure optimal sun-withering on the plant, which occurs in September/October.
Vinification and ageing:
Once harvested, the sun-withered grapes are placed in a press to obtain the must, which is clarified by decanting. After adding a selected yeast, the must is immediately placed in barriques where it keeps slowly fermenting until the following spring. During this period, it develops a 15% alcohol content leaving a good amount of grape sugars, which make the wine sweet.
This wine ages in the same fermentation barriques for a few months undergoing periodic batonnage to release the substances of the fermentation yeast.
After the summer, the wine is bottled and aged.
