Manual havest. First decade and end of September 2010
Reduction of the yield in vineyards (green harvest) and meticulous
selection of bunches perfectly sound and ripe.
The grapes are harvested in two separate periods. The first harvest is
done in slightly over-ripeness "golden grape with amber flashes ", the second harvest
is done at complete over-ripening, when the plant comes into semi-quiescence
and the result is a concentration by evaporation and water loss , leading to a slow withering of the grape.
Ra’is has a golden colour,
The bouquet is intense and persistent; the typical Muscat grape aroma is
mixed with hints of flowers and apricot.
On the palate it is sweet, “elegant” and fresh, well balanced. The
structure is good and the aromatic persistence is lasting and pleasant.
On the whole it is a wine with a strong and elegant character.
