Throughout the next 10-12 days, fermentation occurred at temperatures of 15-17°C in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged for 3 months before being filtered, fined, refrigerated, then bottled.

On the nose, there are strong aromas of wild flowers, honey and musk. Subtle hints of bitter almonds follow. Sweet, yet fresh, this is a well-balanced wine with a pleasant, lingering finish of ripe fruit. Best when consumed young.
