Winemaking
Manual selection of grapes at their optimum point of
ripeness. Once in the winery, the grapes were cold macerated
for 6 - 8 hours to give more structure and flavour to the
finished wine. The grapes are then lightly pressed and the
juice transferred to new american oak casks for a
fermentation that lasts between 15 and 20 days at cellar
temperature: between 16 and 20° C. The young wine remains
on its lees which are periodically stirred through the wine so
that they hang in suspension. The wine is regularly tasted to
assess its flavour evolution, until we decide on the optimum
moment to rack it and bottle it.


Vintage
The 2018 harvest began at CVNE on the 19th September and
ended on the 26th October. Given the adverse weather conditions of this year’s harvest, timing of
key tasks in the vineyard was critical to obtaining high quality grapes. The harvest began with a
dry autumn, following one of the worst droughts in history, and winter began with long awaited
rains, cold spells, frost and snow, which were common in past years. There then followed a cold,
wet spring and a warm summer. Considering that this was a year with high rainfall, the harvest
took place calmly and selectively.
