Douja d’Or 2015 Award
Soon after, the mash is transferred to a modern press in order to remove the skins and seeds and continue with the so -called “white winemaking.” This is done because the Ortrugo is a delicate wine, and then, letting the juice ferment by itself, it promotes the formation of a fine bouquet, with hints of flowers and the typical bitter aftertaste.
The wine is left to rest in the cellar until winter, when it is transferred into an autoclave for a refermentation. After that, we proceed with filtration and bottling.
