The grapes are harvested by hand in September when their chemical and sensory profiles are optimally balanced. This is followed by gentle pressing and static decantation of the must. Primary fermentation takes place in steel tanks at 18°C-19°C, with select yeasts. Once the wine has been cleared, it is transferred to pressure tanks to make it sparkling. It remains there for 20-25 days, then it is left on its lees for approximately 10 days. After it is bottled, it is left to age for 2-3 weeks before being sold.
Bead: A continuous stream of very fine bubbles.
Colour: Soft, bright straw yellow.
