GRAPE VARIETIES AND VINIFICATION TECHNIQUE
This white wine is produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes cultivated in densely planted rows (over 4,000 vines per hectare) and harvested in early September.
A low yield per vine ensures that the grapes will be rich in sugar without losing crucial acidity.
Soft-pressing of the grapes is followed by a careful selection of the free-run juice which ferments for 6-8 days.
The new wine is then chilled to prevent the onset of malolactic fermentation and stored in stainless steel tanks for 3-4 months before it is bottled at the beginning of the following year.
