Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The wine undergoes a short period of cold maceration that lasts for around 6 hours. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 14-16 ºC in stainless steel tanks for up to 12-14 days. It is followed by a short period of maturation, resulting in an elegant, fresh and fruity wine.
