Wine Profile

Tasting Notes A brilliant, clear golden yellow colour. Intense, complex bouquet of ripe citrus fruit (grapefruit), peach, honey and dried fruit, along with a toasted note. Full and silky on the palate, mature and ample with notes of vanilla, toast, butter and tropical fruit. Great length.
Production Notes The harvesting date is triggered grape variety by grape variety, and only when the grapes have reached optimum ripeness and after they have been rigorously tasted. The hand-picked grapes are pneumatically pressed as soon as they get to the winery. After light static settling, some of the juice undergoes alcoholic fermentation in new barrels (70%), while the rest is vinified in stainless steel vats (30%). Malolactic fermentation is then performed. Temperature control is used to conserve all the freshness and integrity of the aromas. Maturing in barrels lasts 7 to 8 months – until the spring equinox – with regular stirring. After a light fining operation the wine is bottled.
