Good spring temperatures and the availability of water encourage the sprouting of grape. Summer rains maintain vegetative equilibrium throughout the hotter months leading to veraison and ripening. Fluctuations in temperatures between day and night allow grapes to ripen fully, achieving a harvest of healthy fruit in excellent condition. Grapes are destemmed and gently pressed, the must is cooled to 10C for a natural clarification, racked to fermenters and vinified at temperatures below 18C . The wine was then kept at a temperature of 10C until the moment of bottling. This procedure allows the preservation of vibrant, complex characters and overall freshness.
Straw yellow colour, hues of lime green. Bouquet opens with luscious fruity, floral aromas reminiscent of lemon zest, pineapple, banana and white flowers. Soft and well balanced on the palate, full bodied and luscious, soft and fresh, with lingering flavours of fresh citrus on the finish.
