Very pale in colour with a mineral nose featuring aromas of flint, red fruit (blackcurrant, pomegranate), rose petal and grapefruit. Lively and fresh on the palate with a fruity finish and a refreshing hint of bitterness. Winemaking: Whole bunches fed into the small 20-hl pneumatic press via a conveyor belt. The grapes were then gently pressed and the first and final pressings were eliminated. There was no contact with the skins during maceration, which explains this wine’s very pale colour. After the juice was settled, it underwent fermentation at low temperatures for approximately ten days in stainless steel, without the addition of sulphur. Ageing: Aged on yeast lees partially in stainless steel and the remainder in older large format oak at low temperatures for 8 months without malolactic fermentation in order to maintain as much freshness and vivacity as possible. Bottled early in May.
