VINTAGE

Summer 2015 was characterized by higher than average temperatures and lack of rainfalls. The weather situation induced us to an early harvest epoch thoughts. The heat, however, did slow the grapes development therefore we had an average harvest’s epoch which began on September 1 and ended on October 27. We immediately recognize the potential of an absolutely promising vintage when we saw the grapes quality brought to the cellar. The whites wines show enveloping and caressing fruit features.

VINIFICATION

Extremely ripe and healthy grapes pressed after 12 hours maceration and fermented in high-quality steel tanks. The young wine refines on natural yeast for eight months.

VINEYARD

The skeleton varies from large pebbles up to very fine sand. Situated at 450 m.s.l.m. , exposed to the East, it is an acidic terrain with a very low humus content.

TASTING NOTES

This wine pairs well with fish appetizers, paté, gooseliver, and can also play a starring role as an aperitif or dessert wine.
