Tasting Notes

Colour

Clean, bright and pale greenish wine.

Nose

Fruit aromas of citrus and melon, combined with hints of spices and honeysuckle reminiscences.

Palate

Fresh, youthful with good acidity.

Production Method

We work closely with our long-time growers to develop balanced sugar and acidity in the grapes when it comes to harvest. The harvest takes place at the optimum point of maturity from the first week of September until the first week of October. After harvesting, the grapes are preserved in the cellar where a destemming and crushing process is performed.

The winemaking process is carried out in an inert atmosphere. Pellicular maceration up to 4 hours in stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature in order to preserve the aromatic complexity of the variety. There is no malolactic fermentation nor pressing of this wine.

Clarification is made based on elements of mineral origin, which makes them vegan-friendly. Several filtrations and microfiltrations up to 0.45 microns are carried out to avoid any suspended particles.
