All about making whisky
The fermentation and maceration of Slavcek 2008 is carried out entirely in barrels for eight consecutive days which are followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is then matured on fine lees in the same barrels that were used for the vinification. During this period the wine becomes more structured. No clarification or filtration is carried out. The resulting wine is fruity with vegetal notes. The palate is powerful and fresh.
Nose: Fruity. Vegetal notes. Palate: Powerful. Supple. Very fresh. Finish: Long.

Having developed in the boom years after the Second World War, conventional agriculture is based on notions of yield. Largely applied in the world of wine-growing, this approach began to be challenged in the early 1990s. Leading the revolt were a handful of grape growers and wine producers who denounced the over-use of pesticides, fungicides and yeasts that have been cultured in laboratories. This trend of moving towards natural methods, that the main wine producers are now also trying to develop, has resulted in the creation of many types of certification; among the strictest is Demeter; there are also various groups and associations in France and across the Alps such as Renaissance AOC and Triple A.
