The grapes are harvested early morning to ensure cool temperatures. After the grapes are destemmed, crushed and pumped into a separating tank where the juice and skins are separated.
The juice then flows by gravity into a settling tank and is settled out overnight. Clear juice is racked into fermentation tanks the next morning and fermentation is started by adding selected yeast. The juice is fermented at 14oC until dry, where after muscadel juice is added to sweeten and CO2 for perlé just before bottling.
