  • Other Information:We harvest the grapes very early (late August) to have a low alcoholic grade and a sustained acidity. Then we press the grapes whole with soft pressing, taking a sample of just the juice. A part of the must is immediately frozen, and will subsequently be used as a "liqueur de tirage" in place of sugar, for the second fermentation in the bottle. The base goes through the complete alcoholic fermentation in steel, then a slight cold stabilization and transfer some to take out some of the large deposits of lees. In late November and early December, we thaw the must , unite it with the must, and proceed with bottling. The first warm days in spring is when the "miracle" of the second fermentation begins , and La Matta is ready for immediate drinking.
