Tasting Notes

Aromas of white fruits, with apricots and pineapple coming to the fore and traces of tropical fruit. Very fresh on the palate, revealing fine acidity that highlights some minerality. Good volume on the palate with a sumptuous quality in perfect balance
with the vitality provided by the precise acidity.The hand-picked grapes are placed in small, shallow boxes and taken to the on-site winery. Manual sorting is followed by destemming and gentle crushing after which the grapes are transferred to a pneumatic press for a light pressing. Fermentation take place in stainless steel vats at low temperatures in order to conserve the wine’s aromatic expression. Sulphur dioxide addition prevents the start of malolactic fermentation, thus ensuring the wine’s crisp, fresh character.
