Winemaking notes

The harvest for Carpe Diem Rose begins a bit earlier comparing the one of the same grape varieties for red wine. Grapes are hand-picked in the early morning and carried out with 10-12 kg boxes. After 24-hour cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The fine selection of grapes is sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak for 24 to 48 hours takes place in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless-steel tank with a capacity of 500 to 5000 litres. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation for about two weeks at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for 30-50 days, batonnage (stirring) is carried out if necessary. Filtration, clarification, blending and bottling complete the winemaking process.
