Harvest period. Mid-September with grapes harvested before their full ripening.
Vinification. Grapes are harvested prematurely in order to respect their acidity and aromaticness. After delicate pressing, they are left to marinade cold for a few hours.
Then, the must is separated from the peel by means of soft pressing, cleaned by means of static decantation and made ferment at a controlled temperature with selected aromatic yeasts. Once fermentation is completed, the following steps consist in refining in steel and foam formation according to the Charmat method.
Tasting notes. The wine straw-yellow colour and its fine and persistent bead turn Nectar into a fresh, scented and intense sparkling white wine. To smell, it presents some Pear, Banana, Orange flowers and hawthorn notes that recall the Chardonnay grape fruit.
To taste, it has a balanced, soft character that expresses its sweetness, which is perfectly integrated and sustained by acidity. Its fineness and taste olfactory persistence makes the wine full-bodied and pleasant, with a grape fruit that remains on the palate for a long time.
Serving temperature. 6/8 °C
Recommended pairings. Ideal as appetizer and to accompany starters and seafood dishes; it is drunk pleasantly during the entire meal.
