Sphera Chardonnay 2017
In a country that consumes 85% red wine, it is special if you only make white wine, but yes if the soil asks for it ....
An impressionable, invigorating wine. The grapes are harvested at their optimal ripeness and gently pressed to extract the juice. Then they are fermented in stainless steel vats. A combination of cold fermentations with a focus on the extract of fruit in the stainless steel tanks. Fine attention to the sediments. 35% French Oak wood, 65% steel tanks
This process creates a noble, complex and flavorful Chardonnay that gradually reveals itself.
