Domaine de Granajolo
Blanc Tradition Vermentinu 2018
The soil is marked by decomposed sand and layer of granite. Planted in 1983, vineyards face North-North/East and South-South/West and are trained with the Cordon du Royat system. Density is between 3.330 and 4.000 plants per hectare with manual debudding and mechanic grass removal. Only sulfur and copper sprayed, no chemicals at all. Yields: 30hl pr hectare planted. Vinification: Direct pressing with a pneumatic press. Fermentation is fully carried out in stainless steel tanks with control temperature between 16 and 18°C. No malolactic fermentation. Lees stirring for 2 weeks. Use of bentonite for protein stability and cold transition for tartaric stability. Aging: 3 months in stainless steel tanks. No fining. Tangential filtration that allows us to add very low sulfur doses while keeping the stability of the wine. Bottled in Feb. and stored in an air-conditioned cellar room.
