Golden, clear. Flavour of acacia, honey, buttery, slightly vanilla. The taste is full. Hint of lemon. We find our grape variety with this freshness. Balanced, elegant, depth, length.


Manual harvest, lifting bucket without pump with just an endless screw, which dumps the grapes on a conveyor belt to transport them to the wine press. The duration of the pressing is 1h45.


The maturity of the grape depends on the product to be made. For a white wine, the sugar level is a fundamental criterion. To produce a dry white wine, we harvest the fruit a little before the maturity of the sugars. At this point, the ratio of sugar to acid is optimal.

In the approach of culture and organic production, the lees being of quality, without synthetic chemicals harmful to yeasts, they are preserved in the wine. The turbidity of the must guarantees a good supply of the yeasts and winemaking in vats therefore does not require the addition of yeast. The fermentation starts spontaneously under the action of the natural yeasts of the grape and continues until the exhaustion of sugars.
