Winemaker’s notes

The climate during season 2015-2016 was not usual comparing it with past years. The main effects were over the health of the grapes due to strong showers during April; a delay in the ripening period due to a cold spring; and lower general yield due to both conditions. All our wines are expected to develop very well ending up fresh and with good natural acidity. In the case of whites, they will show lower alcohol levels. In the case of reds, they will be elegant with flower notes and fruity. In general, we´ll get lower yields but high quality wines, representatives of the climate conditions, origin and variety.

Vinification

The fruit was harvested at the ends of March. The must was slowly fermented in small stainless steel tanks at 13°C (55° F) during 25 days. To enhance the aromas, several strains of yeast were used to obtain varied and complex aromas. Once the wine was dry, it was clarified, cold stabilized and matured in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting notes

Pale yellow golden color and bright. Presents itself in nose with a medium-high intensity, notes of green pepper and minerality for a start and continuing with reminders of pear, pineapple, green apple and lemon. In mouth, it feels a bit sparkly, dry, the green pepper is confirmed adding some grapefruit as well. It is a very fresh wine with high acidity and balanced.
