Wine production process
The grapes arrived at the winery in the morning hours. The mechanical harvest during the late-night hours, allowed the grapes to be processed while still cool from the chilly evenings. The clusters were immediately and gently pressed to receive the highest quality must.
After chilling the must and approximately 24 hours of settling in tank, the cleared must was decanted to another chilled stainless-steel tank to begin the alcoholic fermentation. The alcoholic fermentation was carried out for four weeks at a temperature of 12℃ in order to preserve the varietal characteristics of the fruit.
Prior to the depletion of all the natural sugars from the grapes the wine is chilled to 0℃ in order to halt the fermentation and preserve a balanced 1.5% residual sweetness. The wine did not undergo Malolactic fermentation in order to preserve natural acidity and maintain a crisp expression.
Description of the Wine: This bright, clear wine has a light gold hue with a tint of green. The bouquet is filled with notes of tropical fruit and melon. On the palate this wine is crisp and soft with refreshing acidity that balances the subtle sweetness of this semi-dry wine.
