Hand harvesting in small crates. After de-stemming and crushing, the temperature of the grapes is dropped to 8 – 10ºC for the maceration. A light pressing follows, after which the must is separated and decanted through the process of natural sedimentation at low temperature. Three months on the lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and at least two months in bottle.
“Aromas of yellow flowers, white melon and apple. Well-balanced palate, with good acidity
and a soft texture. Fresh, intense fruit and citrus fruit flavors, with notes of sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs on the finish. Delightful now or can be cellared over 5 years.”
