Prélude Sec 2017

Prélude Sec 2017

Description

This is a fruity wine with aromas of citrus, white flowers (flowers of lemon tree) and white peach of the Sauvignon grapes, always with an exquisite balance.
At the beginning, the mouth is full and round. The palate is particularly intense for this type of wine and extends over a nice lemony touch due to the Sauvignon. The finish is amplified by a complex touch provided by the Muscadelle, whose taste is expanding after few months of maturation,
This wine can be drunk fresh or can age for one or two years.

Vinification

All the harvest is hand selected on a conveyor at the entrance of the cellar. Then the grapes are put in a stainless steel vat for one or two days. After fermenting under an automatic cooling system, this dry white wine is matured stirring on lees during a minimum of five months.
