Harvest: Manual harvesting in small picking boxes.

Vinification Method: Destemming, no crushing, cold soak - skin contact under controlled conditions, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increasing temperatures, delestage, maintenance of wine ‘’sur lies’’ for eight months with regular stirring.

Ageing: 12 months in Allie - Bertrange oak casks medium to light toast. No treatment or filtration before bottling and 12 months in bottles.

Tasting Characteristics: Meticulous care in the vineyard and a gentle touch in the winery resulted in ALPHA’s PINOT NOIR. A wine of great intensity, balance and structure. Depth and concentration balanced by the fresh acidity and minerality that are typical of the site. Influenced by new oak, their subdued, alluring aromas, characterized from wild cherries aromas, with hints of spiced black plums, raspberries and cocoa seduce the educated palate, as does the vibrant acidity
