Wine Story
These specially selected grapes are machine harvested at night, while still cold, to preserve fresh fruit flavors. After the crush, the grapes are macerated at 8-10°C for 4-6 hours to enhance varietal aromas. The must is clarified by natural sedimentation at 10-12°C. After this, the must is pumped to a fermentation tank and a selection of yeast is added, keeping the temperature-controlled at 14-18°C for about 21 days.
Tasting Notes
Easy-drinking with pear, pineapple and apricot on the nose, a crisp palate with bright citrus but a hint of cream, leading to a refreshing finish.
Pairings
Enjoy with grilled fish or scallops, garlic-dressed steamed shellfish, lightly-sauced pastas, cream-based soups, or your favorite cheese platter.
