This estate wine is made with grapes from the winery’s highest and sunniest plot: Monte Alto. Its unique conditions: perfect south facing orientation, gravelly sandy-loam soil, slopes over 20% and unique micro-climate, award the Albariño grape an excellent character.
For the 2013 vintage, spring arrived early, accelerating the vine’s vegetative cycle. The fruit ripened slowly thanks to the mild summer temperatures. Balanced vines and the extraordinary weather conditions during the month of September, marked by heat and lack of rain, caused the fruit to mature perfectly. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. After fermentation, the wine was racked and then aged in stainless steel vats for a further 12 months, during which the fine lees were stirred regularly using the bâtonnage method.
This resulted in the wine achieving good alcoholic strength, great acidity and an excellent sanitary state. A simply magnificent Monte Alto vintage.
