Product details

The lack of precipitation from November to March produces grapes of excellent health and quality, with well-developed aromas and flavors.
The vines are trained in a traditional vertical positioning system, with drip irrigation.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Grapes were handpicked to avoid damaging the clusters at the end of March. They were then de-stemmed and pressed using a pneumatic press. 80% of the must was fermented in fine grain French oak barrels and kept with its lees for 6 months. The other 20% was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation took place in a controlled temperature environment between 12 and 15 ºC for approximately 18 to 21 days.

TASTING NOTES

Golden yellow color with greenish hues.
The complex aromas exhibit great intensity and notes of tropical and citrus fruit, nicely balanced with notes of toasted oak, hazelnuts, cinnamon and vanilla. A delicate and elegant wine in the mouth, with a fine balance between the fruit and the wood, nice acidity and persistent finish.
