When your palate is asking for freshness, this wine is excellent in any season to accompany white meat, grilled meat or fish, and spicy cuisine.

At optimum ripeness the grapes are carefully picked and sorted, the winemaking begins with a cold maceration between 24 to 48 hours. The grapes start to saignée or bleed their flavors and color. This must and some direct pressed must are blended and undergo a cold settling. The alcoholic fermentation last for about 20 days. Then the wines are aged for 6 months in stainless steel vats.

The entire process is performed in a temperature-controlled environment (17°C) which gives an aromatic and fruity bouquet with roundness. Bottling takes place at the winery to oversee the quality and processing of our wines from the grapevine to the bottle.
