Our vineyards are planted in clay and calcareous soils in a continental climate. The Chardonnay harvest is during the night taking advantage of the low temperatures. Maceration with the skins occurs for eight hours and the fermentation lasts 15 days at temperatures between 55-59ºF. It has a contact time with its lees of three months in contact with French oak and micro-oxygen.
