Selected from high yielding vines or grapes with the most neutral flavor, the
grapes are mechanically harvested and then pressed immediately to avoid color extraction and loss of flavor.The clear juice is then fermented at 18 -20 °C to keep the neutral characters of the wine. The wine is extracted from the lees immediately after the fermentation. Secondary fermentation after 3 months, following the traditional Champenoise Method. The wine ages for 9 months on lees before the final disgorgement.

palate, acid. Bubbles are well balanced to the palate. Freshness in finish. Ideal as an aperitif, or with tapas, salads, snacks or raw fish.
