Yield: 50 hl /ha
Pneumatic pressing following by gentle cold settling. Temperature-controlled fermentation between 16°C and 20°C in glass-lined concrete tanks.
Racking on fine lees and stirring (bringing the lees to the surface gives body to the wine and promotes the development of complex aromas).
Maturation for 20 months on lees. The wine then spends a few months in oak barrels, which imparts discreet structure and character.
Bottled: November 2015
Metaphore offers a solution to whatever is missing from the language of wine. Through it, the wine becomes a body, a being with character. It can be fleshly, fat, warm, honest or generous.
