Tasting notes
Bright straw yellow with greenish highlights. ------------------------------------------

Wine maker notes
Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes immediately undergo soft pressing, with separation of the free-run juice from the skins. The must is then transferred into heat conditioned, stainless steel tank. After chilling and static racking, fermentation occurs at a low temperature (65F). At the end of the fermentation, the wine is stored at a temperature of 40C to prevent malolactic fermentation. The wine develops in steel for 4-5 months at a low temperature, left on its fine lees to increase its aromatic complexity and fullness on the palate. Then, after cold stabilization, it is bottled before the summer.
