ÔPIA Chardonnay is a sparkling organic alcohol-free drink characterised by its delicate yet persistant bubbles. It offers a pale yellow hue and bright silver core. The nose is dominated by fresh, crunchy aromas of white owers, green apple and white pear which combine harmoniously with citrus fruits and buttery notes. Its creamy mousse coats the palate and gives way to subtle aromas of citrus fruits and an exceptionally fresh finish.
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed followed by skin maceration at cold temperatures of around 4°C. The maceration process, which is carried out before pressing, lasts for 8 hours and enables optimum extraction of all the components in the grape such as polyphenols, anthocyanins, tannins and resveratrols as well as minerals and aromatic precursors. The ageing process involves the infusion of organic grape pips and French oak in order to ensure excellent aromatic complexity.
