We left the grapes in an industrial fridge for 24h at 4°C.
We sort and destem 100% of the grapes, followed by 24/48h maceration with skin at 7ºC, to be pressed softly.
Fermented in a French oak foudre of 75HL and 5 new French oak barrels, at 14-16° for 15 days. The wine remained there another 10 months, with weekly battonages together with its finest lees. There was no malolactic fermentation.
Bright yellow color. Complex and changeable nose that gains in intensity. Firstly it shows certain herbaceous and fennel hints, notes of green apple and pear. Then it gets more serious and consistently mineral, what makes of this wine, something really special. Light notes of yeast due to the ageing on lees.
Voluminous in mouth with delicate texture. There is an important ripeness that is balanced with the freshness of the fruit and a nice and soft bitterness that shows a generous length and consistency to this wine.
