GRAPE COMPOSITION:
Macabeo 100%
 
WINEMAKING:
From our selected vineyard in zones of around 500 m. altitude. With very stony, scarcely fertile land, plants of around 35 years old. With this we have selected very balanced vines with great potential in their grapes. The grapes are harvested at the very start of the day so the grapes maintain all the quality in their flavors and aromas.
From the very beginning the winemaking process takes place with a complete lack of oxygen and at temperatures that do not exceed 14ºC. When the fermentation has finished, the wine is macerated with the finest lees to give it more structure on the palate.
 
TASTING NOTES:
Aromas of honeysuckle and tropical fruits, pineapple in particular, inform the nose of a dry, vibrant, nicely balanced wine that will pair nicely with mussels and clams. Drink this excellent value over the next 12-18 months.
