Veritas 2015: Silver; Michelangelo Awards 2015: Silver; Veritas 2016: Silver; Veritas 2017: Silver
A twelve year old vineyard standing on a loamy soil with an east/west row direction and perfect exposure for ripening.
Enough cold during the preseason ensured even budding. Moderate conditions prevailed during most of the harvest, with the exception a heat wave during the last week of January. Overall, very good conditions for ripening and harvesting.
Machine harvested from 2am to 9am into 4 ton bins, after we did grape selection in the vineyard.
Grapes harvested at 21 B, destemmed , crushed and only very clear juice are fermented with Vin 7 yeast in steel tanks at 13 C. After fermentation the wine was immediately racked of the lees, stabilized and bottled.

A crisp, fruity white wine with hints of guava and passion fruit on the nose. This wine displays mouthwatering fruit on the palate and crisp, well balanced acidity. Ideal with seafood or to sip on its own.
