Vinification Notes

Made from a 50/50 blend of Sauvignon Blanc and White Malvasia grown on fine textured soft soils with good drainage, picked during the second and third weeks of August. The grapes were destemmed, crushed and gently pressed. Cold static sedimentation was followed by fermentation in stainless steel to preserve both the freshness and the fruit aromas of the grapes, and further aged in stainless steel to retain their fruit-driven characteristics.
