Awards, Reviews and other Notes

James Suckling 90 Points Feb 2020
This has attractive aromas of fragrant lemons and limes, turning to very fresh, zesty apples and limes on the crisp, focused palate. A blend 50% riesling, 40% albarino and 10% savagnin. Drink now.



Winemaker Notes

Harvest - By hand. The grapes are placed in small 12kg receptacles when the grapes have reached full maturity and richness. The harvest is performed at dawn, providing coldness to the fermentation.

Winery - The third grape selection takes place on fixed tables, where imperfections of every grape due to dryness, over ripeness, and damaged fruit are removed one-by-one.

Vinification - The selected grapes pass through a mechanical or manual de-stemmer, depending on the type of varietal, and afterwards the grapes pass through a wooden hydraulic press. The pressing is soft and slow, in order to achieve a good extraction of the juice. This juice goes into stainless steel vats, which are in a chamber at 15 degrees centigrade, which is the fermentation temperature Following the fermentation racking is done and the wine remains in stainless steel vats for a period of one year. Bastonages are done periodically in order to be in contact with the wine and its fine lees.

Bottling - A minor filtration is performed before bottling, in order to maintain its cleanliness.
