VINIFICATION

Average yield per Ha: 60 hl

The grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe (2nd ten days of September).

Soft pressing with separation of the must from the skins, slow fermentation at a low temperature (18°C).

The fermented must is subsequently separated from the rough lees and stored until mid-February in steel tanks, in contact with the “fine lees”, which are removed on a weekly basis (batonage).

The wine is bottled in the first ten days of March.

 

SENSORIAL CHARACTERISTICS AND PAIRINGS 

The wine has a very characteristic aroma of pear flesh and ripe grapefruit.

The palate is harmonious with balanced acidity that makes it ideal for pairing with fish.

Good cellar life.

Serve cool at a temperature of 14°C.
