About the wine
Grapes are carefully selected from the highest parts of the oldest vineyards, in the districts of Samaniego, Laguardia and Leza, at an altitude of 580m above sea level. Poor calcareous/ clay soil, on south-facing slopes. The subsoil is made up of various layers of white rock. The age of vines is between 30 and 80 years old. Plantation density is 3,000 vines/hectare. Goblet pruning. Hand harvested and taken to the winery in small trailer loads. The grapes are destemmed and pressed mechanically. 5 hours low temperature maceration. The grape must ferments on the lees in stainless steel vats for 27 days at a temperature of 15-16°C. Cold stabilisation and filtered only for tartaric stabilisation. The wine is then kept in the vats until it is bottled.
Pale yellow and bright colour with greenish hues. Citrus and white fruits (green apple, pear) with floral and slightly herbal memories, very fine expression of the variety. Very good balance, well-salted acidity, fresh, greedy and with a certain oiliness note. Great balance of flavours where green apple and lemon, ripened greengage plum and white flowers are predominating.
