Description:

This 100% Albariño is made from free-run must of selected grapes from the best vineyards, which are grown on sandy loam soils, granitic and slightly acidic. The wine is fermented in stainless steel at 16°C (60°F) for 21 days, remaining on its fine lees until the stabilization and bottling.

Tasting Notes:

Straw yellow with greenish, bright and clear tones. 

On the nose, medium-high, citric notes (grapefruit and lime) and white flowers, acacia and orange blossom, with a sweet tropical background, as well as intense aroma of lychees. 

On the palate, fresh, citric, intense and fruity with an elegant, slightly bitter finish.
