The grapes selected for Lenda come from plots located in the vineyards of Las Barrocas, Torre and El Alto. These are higher altitude vineyards with less humidity, more ventilation and greater temperature variation between day and night. As a result, we obtain grapes with slower maturation and wines with greater aromatic intensity and acidity which are lighter and fresh on the palate. The plots are planted with a trellis system and face north, northeast and southeast.
Their location allows them to be continuously ventilated and bathed in sunlight, ensuring optimum quality and maturity of the clusters. These plots were harvested on 27, 28 and 29 September. The soils on these parcels have a pH of between 6.5 and 6.2. The soils are granite and shallow, high in organic matter that compensates for the shallowness of the soil (30-40 cm) and improves the retention of water and nutrients.
Intense and complex nose where floral and menthol notes very characteristic of our vineyards appear, are also combined with an elegant mineral note, as well as citrus and white fruit touches. The palate is medium-bodied sweet, while fresh, fruity notes and very nice balsamic notes, which give a long and pleasant finish. It combines well with fish, seafood and sushi, as well as pasta and white meats.
