VINEYARDS

Serez vineyard has a stony, gravely and clay red soil and is at an altitude of 235 meters. This altitude gives the possibility of day and night temperature differences during late August and early September, namely during the harvest period. This ensures the grapes to retain their acidity while reaching sugar and phenolic maturity.

WINEMAKING

The grapes are handpicked, destemmed and crushed. It is fermented with native yeast only. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tank with a skin contact of 3 weeks with pumping overs. The wine is barrel aged for 12 months in 1 year old French oak barrels and a minimum of 6 months in bottle.
