Tasting notes

Very clear bright pale straw yellow in colour. On the nose, notes of fresh tropical fruits, freshly cut grass and lime blossom. Very fruity and intense, with good volume in the mouth. Smooth and velvety, with good acidity.

Winemaker notes

The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay varieties used for blending this wine are harvested at night in order to conserve maximum freshness in the grape. In the winery we use small cement tanks in which the wine remains in contact with the lees for 6 months which, with careful bâtonnage (lees stirring), gives the wine its special characteristics, contributing with new aromas and improving its ageing qualities.
