Winemaker's notes:
Viognier contributes fruit and floral aromas typical of the variety, grown in warmer climates. Chardonnay makes the wine rounder and volumious. Brings complexity with aromas of slightly roasted nuts. The wine is mellow with a clean aftertaste. Freshness is not sharply defined, but prolongs the taste.
After the harvest grapes are chilled in a cooling chamber up to 8 degrees. This allows its precise processing and eliminates the risk of occurrence of secondary processes and undesirable flavors. Grapes are carefully sorted before squashing. The clear juice is fermented slowly for about 35 days at precisely controlled temperature. The wine matures on its fine lees four months and a half.
