Wine Making Technique
Our Pura 8 oenologist carefully selects grapes according to their aromatic qualities given by sun exposure, climate, soil and age of the vines. The pruning, lead removal, irrigation and thinning happens under the most delicate procedures selecting only the best grapes. Afterwards, the grapes are poured into large stainless steel tanks for 7 day to increase the temperature and begin the fermentation process.
After fermentation, the Pinot Noir Grand Reserve is placed in 225L French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place. For a period of 12 months, the wine will go through a maturing and stabilization process. The process is completed when it is bottled and stored in a cellar under a temperature controlled environment for 6 months.
The main fermentation evolves at a controlled temperature of 24c - 30c for a period of time until the density level indicates the complete fermentation of sugars. Fermentation takes place in small tanks of 5,000 liters.
