In the vineyard

In 2016, the great heat waves in the summer and during the harvest required a very fast and demanding harvest. Despite the difficult conditions, the harvest in Simonsig was 2% higher than in 2015 and the ripening of the grapes was absolutely optimal.

In the cellar

The bunches are hand-picked and pressed; a part of the must remains to macerate on the skins for the whole night. The must is then inoculated with selected yeasts, chosen for the production of fruity wines. The fermentation temperature in steel tanks is kept around 12 ° C, in order to ensure a slow process capable of producing the best fruit flavor. The fermentation is then completed for 11 months in 400-liter French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation is avoided.
