Season 2014-2015 had the highest temperatures and least amount of frosts in the last 3 years. It`s main characteristics was the absence of rainfalls during the flowering and harvest period, giving us very healthy grapes to work with.
High temperatures got our grapes faster to the optimal ripening, giving to our wines a discreet acidity, structured tannins and higher aromatic intensity.
After an exhaustive selection of the best lots of Chardonnay, Viognier and Riesling, they were hand-picked and the hole bunches were pressed to obtain a clean must focused in preserving the aromas of each variety. A slow alcoholic fermentation took place in new French oak barrels, leaving it later to mature in them between 6 to 8 months. Before bottling, the wine was clarified and filtered.
Interesting yellow-greenish color with Golden rims. It has complex aromas of high intensity, reminding us of caramel coming from the oak barrels, tropical notes like custard apple and guava and floral notes that remind us to jasmine. It also has soft citric notes and a touch of vanilla is perceived when settled for a couple of minutes. In mouth, the French oak combines greatly with the freshness and density of this wine. It is a full bodied white blend with medium-high acidity and a long lasting finish that shows it´s elegance and quality.
