Tasting notes

Straw and brilliant color with greenish hints.  Very complex on the nose, this Sauvignon Blanc opens with crispy zested lemon peel and grassy notes of freshly cut grass,  Honeycrisp apple and focused minerality, complemented by complex ferment aromas as well as very subtle oak and mossy touch. Full-flavored and firm, the wine has a textured palate with elegant oak touch and lingering, mineral finish.

Winemaking notes

The harvest takes place in the early morning, at the end of September. The grapes are hand-picked and carried out with 10-12 kg boxes. After 24-hour cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The fine selection of grapes is sent by gravity for gentle pressing and cold soak in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are then strained and delicately pressed into 225-liters French oak barrels (barrique). Slow fermentation at controlled temperature takes place. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for a certain period of time, batonnage is carried out if necessary. Matured wine is separated from the lees. Rough filtration and bottling complete the winemaking process.
