Early harvest grapes from Pyrgos village. After cooling them down at 5οC, the grapes were pressed as quickly as possible and the juice was left to settle down. Primary fermentation took place, resulting in a base wine with a neutral flavor character, high acidity and just a moderate alcohol by volume, as in the case of champagne. The wine was stabilized and filtered and a proportion of liqueur de tirage was added to encourage the secondary fermentation. The wine was then closed with a crown cap and left to ferment and create the sparkle. The sparkling wine was left over a period of 19 months on the lees, in a process known as yeast autolysis.

Total Production: 15.000
