After a soft crushing, a small portion of the grapes are treated to a criomaceration for twenty four hours at 5C. The remaining components are traditionally vinified in fermenters for two or three weeks at 12C to 16C through the action of cultured yeasts. A course of malolactic varies according to the demands of vintage. Most parts are treated to a a few months of unwooded maturation, a minor component is sent for a term in seasoned oak barrel.
Pale straw yellow with green tints. Intense floral nose with scents of wisteria flowers, together with bananas and pear.
