Manual harvesting in plastic crates. The crushing and de-stemming are followed by the cooling of the must without straining for 4-6 hours for a better extraction of the primary aromas in the peel, continued with the clarifying of the must and seeding it with selected yeasts in automatically-controlled low temperature conditions (approximately 17 ºC).
