Aromas and flavors include fresh fruits like red apple, pear, white peach and melon, and delicate pineapple with an elegant note of wild mountain rose. Varietals include 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Bianco, and 10% Muller Thurgau. Serving Temperature is 50-54° F.
Grapes are harvested and selected by hand at the beginning of September and after destemming and crushing, soft pressed to extract only the aromatic compounds. After natural clarification, fermentation is done at controlled temperature of 64°F for 10 to 11 days. Then the wine matures for 4-6 months on the lees. After the assembly of the cuvée, the wine undergoes the second fermentation in autoclave for 15 days until the fermentation is naturally blocked, cooling down the temperature to 41°F to preserve the natural sugar that gives balance and smoothness to this sparking wine. The wine matures on the lees in autoclave for 3-5 moths before cold stabilization, filtration and bottling.
