Description:

After a dry, mild winter, the winery experienced an optimal blooming season. 

The light August rains delayed the intermediate stage of ripening.  September had no rainfall which led to a perfect, balanced final growth of the grape.

Starting from perfectly ripe grapes in their ideal state, exclusively from the sub-area of the Condado del Tea, meticulous pressing gives an excellent quality must.

Fermentation of the alcohol takes place in stainless steel vats, at a controlled temperature of 18ºC; when fully fermented, all the wines are decanted to separate the dregs, followed by the “coupage” of the various vats. The wine is then stabilized by applying cold, filtered and bottled, after passing through a microbe-free filter process to ensure that the wine is preserved in the bottle in perfect condition.

Tasting Notes:

Clear, brilliant wine, straw yellow colored with green nuances. 

An intense aroma on the nose, perfectly combining the fruity and floral notes, particularly apple and stoned fruit (apricot). 

Freshness on the palate typical of Albariño, with a touch of acidity perfectly balanced with the structure and body of this wine. Meaty, sweet with a glyceric finish.
