Wine Description

Vineyards: More than 25 years old. ● Cultivated on dry land. ● Between 700 and 800mts a.s.l.

Features: ● Manual harvest in 20kg crates. ● Film maceration of 4 hours at 10ºC. Pressed in an inert atmosphere and static settling at 10ºC. ● Fermentation in French barrels ( half new and half one year old) at 16ºC.

Aging: Aging on its lees in the same barrels as fermentation for approximately 7 months depending on tastings. ● 17 months in bottle.

Tasting Notes

Color: Yellow straw color, slightly deeper than the Verdejo due to its year and a half of aging.

Nose: Very complex and powerful, due to the perfect balance between the fruit varietal (herbs, tropical fruits, slightly citric aroma) and the toasted notes of its aging in barrels (vanilla & notes of pastries).

Palate: Dry, unctuous, with great volume and structure, but also very fresh thanks to its good acidity. Long, expressive and persistent.
