Between 9-11 º C
Only the best Garnacha grapes are selected for this wine. The grapes undergo controlled maceration for between 3 and 6 hours, which allows the skins to remain in contact with the must until the wine acquires its characteristic rosé colour. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of between 15-16 º C for 15-18 days in order to allow the elegant aromas to develop to their full potential.
