Vinification 

Hand picked, followed by soft pressing and transferred to steel vats for fermentation, the wine is then transferred to barrels and stored over the winter on their lees, which imparts a subtle yeastiness and, occasionally, a slight spritz.

Aging

Wine is aged in the barrel with the yeast retained, rather than being clarified before aging. Aging on the lees increases the complexity and creaminess of the wine

Colour:

Pale yellow

On the nose citrus fruit, green apple, pear and minerality.
