The yield is controlled at 9-10 ton/ha. Regulation of production, e.g., green pruning is made when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. Water balance is controlled daily.

Tasting notes

Bright yellow colour. On the nose seductive aroma of peach blossom, melon, juicy lemon, grapefruit, and freshly mown grass take over. Rich and crispy on the pallate. Carpe Diem White has excellent balance with predominant citrusy flavor, grassy notes and mineral undertones. 

Winemaking notes

The harvest takes place in the early mornings. Hand-picked grapes are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

After immediate 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 finest selection of grapes are sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak takes place in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless steel vats. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for certain period, batonnage is carried out if necessary. Filtration, clarification, blending and bottling complete the winemaking process.
