Elegre use a process which preserves the delicate primary fruit and extracts only soft tannins for our cooking wines. Grapes are fully de-stemmed and gently crushed with some whole berries. Our mature vines are carefully maintained in the vineyard to ensure low yields of small berried fruit with intense flavours and tannins. All fruit is picked at night to preserve flavour.
