Vineyard

Aurora Crystal is made of pure Chardonnay grapes. The annual production reached 1200 in 2014 and the production predicted to reach 2000 in the coming year.

Winemaking

Grape harvest is made by hand, typically the last week of August. Our goal is to pick at maturity level that would provide an optimal sugar level and preserve the natural acidity and fresh aromas of this grape.

The grapes are then squeeze-crushed, gently pressed and cold fermented at 18° C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and bottled approximately 4 months from the date of harvest.

Characteristics

This wine is characterized by a pale, bright, and clear color. The nose is intense with typical dry fruit, and discrete notes of flowers that bring a variety of aromatic herbs and yellow fruit. The attack is thick with dominating fruit notes, followed by a voluminous mouth feel, and long dry finish.
