The juice must is left for decanting at low temperatures (11°C) for 24 to 48 hours. Clean must is separated and is inoculated with selected yeast. The fermentation is carried out for 20 days at controlled temperatures below 15°C in order to develop and preserve the aromas and fresh character of the variety plus their fruit intensity.
