Wine Description

Harvest at Dominio de La Abadesa is conducted at night in order to preserve freshness in aromatics and to avoid any chance of oxidation in the fruit. Once in the cellar, the grapes are cooled to 10°C (50°F) to extract even more aromatic character from the grape skins. There is a cold maceration that lasts 4 hours before the juice is pressed off and allowed to settle.

Fermentation begins naturally with native yeast already present in the cellar. The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 14°C (57°F) in stainless steel tanks. The wine remains in contact with its lees for 3 months while undergoing weekly baronage.

Tasting Notes

Intensely aromatic with both tropical and mineral notes. Hints of fennel and fresh herbs with a touch of anise flavors. On the palate the wine is fresh, fruity and very elegant. It continues with good persistence, elegant acidity and a long, complex finish.
