Full of fresh herbs, citrus fruit and a delicious ripe qualilty.

Food Matches

Perfect to drink with goat cheese, fish, shellfish and crustaceans. Also ideal as an aperitif.

Vinification

Pressing is very slow and smooth thanks to pneumatic presses. Their objective: to extract the purest juice possible. Static settling of must. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in sealed tanks, stainless-steel are used. Period of fermentation: from 2 to 4 weeks. On their estate, alcoholic fermentation is conducted through a temperature control process (18° in order to preserve primary aromas of the grapes). A high – performance thermoregulation system is used. The white wine has remained on its fine lees during 3 months to preserve the fruit aromas. Fine lees are stirred at regular intervals to maintain their influence on the wine. The wine is cold-stabilised and filtered with the aid of Kieselgur filter, just before bottling. Bottled at different times throughout the year and carefully rested before being sold.
