WinemakingRigorous grape sorting by hand on conveyor belt. Whole bunch gentle yet long pressing. Fermentation in stainless steel tank under controlled temperatures. Lees aging for 18 months in the tank. Stirring takes place more regularly in the first months and when necessary for the rest of the aging period.

Tasting NoteBright lemon color. The nose is complex and expressive with a beautiful combination of citrus aromas -mainly lemon and orange- and mineral notes. Similar flavors on the palate, together with sharp acidity and robustness. A remarkably structured and balanced wine. Long finish.
