The use of not only new barriques enhances the varietal character. The gentle vanilla spices from the oak are integrated with great harmony, giving further complexity without being too forward.
The first strong impression is given by the typical and pleasant varietal fruit. The taste is full, soft and complex with a well balanced crisp acidity.
Grapes are chilled at 10°-12° C in a conditioned cellar. Soft pressing was followed by an overnight decanting of the juice to allow settlement of the rough impurities. Fermentation took place for 15 days at temperatures between 20°C and 22°C in French oak barriques. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is kept on the yeasts and frequently stirred up (bâtonnage) until the following spring. Malolactic fermentation was partially done: only half of the barriques went through it.
