This full bodied, unoaked, yet elegant wine has some luscious tropical fruit and white peach flavours, balanced by a fresh finish. The vines are vertically positioned, spaced at 1.5 x 2.2 m and drip irrigated. Our vineyard canopy management begins in the spring with the elimination of undesired shoots. The crops are green harvested to eliminate short shoots. Most of the grapes were hand-harvested the first week of March and only a small fraction was machine picked. Once received at the winery and just before pressing, the bunches are carefully selected and sent to the stainless steel tanks to undergo fermentation. Fermentation takes place at 12° – 16° Celsius for a period of 14 to 16 days with a strict control of temperature in order to protect the delicate varietal aromatic expression in the must. The wine was stabilized for 15–20 days at 4°C and then earth-filtered prior to bottling. Food Recommendation:- As an aperitif, at any time of the day, with some soft cheeses. It is also the perfect combination for citric cold entrees and seafood.
