Description:

The making of this wine was respectful to the grapes throughout all its stages, from their selection at the vineyard and harvesting into low-capacity crates, followed by a smooth extraction and settling of the best free-run juice, complete with extremely low-temperature fermentation. 


Tasting Notes:

Clean, bright yellow-straw color with greenish glints. 

On the nose, fresh with attractive aromas typical of the Albariño grape, dominated by stone fruit (peach, apricot) and tropical fruit (pineapple, passion fruit).White flowers (orange blossom) and hints of citric also coming through. Well-balanced, fresh and pleasant. 

On the palate, a delicious varietal character together with subtle mineral and citric notes.
