Grapes of exceptional quality from a noble terroir allow ChÃƒÂ¢teau dÃ¢â‚¬â„¢AquÃƒÂ©ria to craft a quintessential Tavel, widely appreciated as the finest wine of its appellation. Grapes are handpicked from ChÃƒÂ¢teau dÃ¢â‚¬â„¢AquÃƒÂ©riaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s own vineyards, which span 163 acres across the sandy slopes of Tavel. The mesoclimate is ideal for cultivating Grenache and crafting crisp, fresh rosÃƒÂ© wines. Using its cutting-edge weather station located in the heart of the vineyards, ChÃƒÂ¢teau dÃ¢â‚¬â„¢AquÃƒÂ©ria precisely monitors weather conditions and adjusts vineyard practices accordingly. The grapes are hand harvested and destemmed, followed by a maceration to extract color. The grapes are then pressed and each variety is vinified separately, undergoing temperature-controlled maceration and fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wines see no malolactic fermentation and no oak contact. The winemaker assembles an initial blend in November and then a second blending takes place in January before bottling.
