White button is a blend of all the white vineyards used for our main labels. This is a label of complexity and many fermentation experiments.
A delicate fusion of carefully selected white vineyards from seaside to high hills, boasting an exceptional range of flavors and aromas. These vineyards produce from 400kg to 900kg of grapes per acre, with no access to water beyond rainfall.Thankfully, last year’s rain season was favorable and lasted until April. However, zero rainfall was recorded from April until harvest. Despite this, we are thrilled to report that this white blend has exceeded expectations.
In a surprising turn of events, we experienced five days of unprecedented snowfall. While this may sound alarming, it actually yielded several benefits for our vineyards. Firstly, the snow effectively cleared the vines from any potential fungus. Secondly, this cold snap provided a period of rest for the vines that proved to be advantageous for the upcoming production season.
Treat your palate with the exceptional taste of our White Blend, proving that Mother Nature continues to surprise us with her bounties.
Production protocol of White button
After producing our main labels up to 0.2 atm, we continue pressing until we reach 0.9 atm and gather all the juice in two tanks. This process allows us to make use of the Non free run juice, which would otherwise go to waste.
To ensure that we produce a high-quality wine, we follow the same protocol as the other main labels. Firstly, we use dry ice and avoid using sulfides. We start with the wild yeast and then switch to the main yeast. The wine is then aged on the lees at 10°C for six months. After this period, we stabilize proteins and acidity before finally bottling the wine.
While this wine may have fewer elegant aromas and may not last as many years, it still offers a complex and satisfying flavor that is perfect for those looking for a young, enjoyable wine. By using all the juice, we maximize our resources and minimize waste, while still producing a high-quality product that our customers can enjoy.
