For 50% of the must, pre-fermentative cold maceration is carried out at 5°C for 7-10 days and then fermentation is carried out at 28°C using selected yeasts. For the remaining 50%, more than 50 microvinifications are carried out: with whole clusters, cofermentations of varieties, different ripeness moments, in different types of wood, whole grains, different selected yeasts, different yields, temperatures, etc. All wines are identified by lots and kept separately in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels and French oak vats.

Yields for the 2020 vintage in the different production zones were affected by a late frost during the flowering season, a situation that, together with the high temperatures recorded during the ripening months and the lack of rainfall, led to the harvesting all varieties 15 to 20 days early. The reduced yields favored an extraordinary concentration of the crop and by managing the early harvest, we maintained an excellent level of freshness.
