Crafting: The grapes arrive in the winery in a perfect sanitary condition, at the exact ripeness degree. They are de-stemmed and pressed to separate the solids from the liquid juices, the must, using a press process. The must is then stored in 9.000 L vats where it goes through a process to eliminate the lees, using cold and pectolyctic enzymes.
It is then transferred to stainless steel vats to undergo the alcoholic fermentation, at a controlled temperature of 15° to 17° C for approximately 15 days. After this, the wines are racked to different vats where they are clarified and stabilized before being bottled. Ageing potential: 3 years Tasting notes: The wine shows a pale yellow hue, with greenish reflections.
The bouquet shows off all the varietal characteristics: citrus at the start and then nuances of pineapple, mango and passion fruit. It is dry, sweet and round in the mouth, with balanced acidity and a long finish.
Pairing notes: Steamed and grilled fish, salads and seafood.
