During this fermentation, it was reassembled by pump and step by robot, performing a long maceration to achieve a balanced aromatic and polyphenolic extraction. It is intended with this technology that the constituents of the quality present in the ripe grapes thus pass smoothly to the wine. At the end, and at the moment "required" by each variiey/batch, the wine was put in the vat and its masses pressed, the wine being the result of the pressing kept aside from the tear.
