about the harvest: Two methods are used. Selected blocks are picked early for fresh fruity style and selected blocks are picked ripe where skin contact is given overnight. 

in the cellar : Then about 10% of juice is extracted by the method of Saignée or 'bleeding'. This gives a well-balanced wine between fresh and crispy and more intensity on mouth feel and flavours. The juice undergoes cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks with white wine yeast for 4 weeks. Then the resultant Rosé is filtered and bottled.
