The Pinot Noir grapes are crushed and sent to the inert press where they remain in contact with the husks for 6 hours, in order to extract a must with a slightly pinkish color, while the Chardonnay grape is immediately pressed in order to avoid oxidation of the color. The must of each of the varieties is then separately fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts and temperature control. After the first fermentation, the wines remain stabilizing for 1 month in a stainless steel tank, after which it is submitted to the second fermentation. Before making the foam, the assemblage of the base wines is realized, looking for the desired color tone and the harmony between the two varietals. The same happens in special tanks (autoclaves) by the Charmat Method, being daily controlled its temperature and pressure. After fermentation, the sparkling wine remains in contact with the yeasts in the autoclave for 2 months, gaining subtle and complex aromas of the yeasts, without losing the fruity character of the original varieties. After 2 months, the sparkling wine is filtered and bottled.
