Description

This is a complex vintage, winter was mild but spring was very rainy and cold. Flowering and veraison were 20 days later than previous vintage, altough due to the high temperatures in September, the delay was compensated in 2 weeks. Rain was the most prominent element of the vintage after 2 years of water. deficit but there was an extra effort in the vineyard management. It the end It was a historically fresh and good vintage. Wine made from low yield vineyards. Grapes were picked and selected by hand. Alcoholic fermentation in 500-liter french oak barrels with indigenous yeast. Malolactic fermentation and 4 months ageing in 500-liter French barrels which were already used for 2 previous years. Clear with medium intensity and lemon colour. Nose is clean with medium intensity aromas of citrus fruit and stone such us peach and apricot and soft mineral notes. Palate is dry and fresh with medium body stone fruits and a long finish. Pairs very well with fresh pasta, rice dishes, lemon and aromatic herb seasoned poultry & other white meats. Serve between 6 º and 8 ºC.
