Winemaking:
The grapes are harvested by hand and placed into small plastic baskets, where they will then be brought to the winery. They will undergo a light crushing followed by a soft pressing.
The alcoholic fermentation will take place in vertical stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16°C for about 40 days. Fermenting with a low temperature helps to maintain a small amount of residual sugar which helps give the true expression of Riesling. Then after the temperature will be lowered further to prevent the wine from undergoing any malo-lactic fermentation. The wine will rest on its lees for another 6 months without any bâtonnage. The wine will be ready for bottling in May.

Tasting:
Color: medium intensity of straw yellow with green reflections
Nose: tropical fruits with nuances go towards that of savory herbs, minerality.
Palate: full bodied with good fruit, and good structure playing with the acidity and sweetness from the residual sugar, which gives a long finish very fresh and persistent. Pairings: great with raw seafood dishes, seafood appetizers in general, cooked fish dishes and soups.
