After the moderate temperatures in February, the spring and the beginning of the summer 2010 were characterized with lower temperatures than the usual for the Tikveshiya region. However, in the second half of the summer we had enough sun and warmth which enabled the normal ripening of the grapes. The rainy weather during September led to a rather late harvest. The harvest took place in the moment of the technological ripeness of the grape, when the sugar and the acids are most balanced. The grapes were hand harvested and picked very early in the morning and late in the evening when the temperature is low in order to preserve the aromas.
- Chilling the grapes
- The fruit is crushed and destemmed while preserving the temperature below 12°C
- Certain period of maceration of the must with the other parts of the grapes
- Must clarification
- Long fermentation while controlling the low temperature
- Special treatments of fining and filtration due to the gentle character of the wine
