Citrus and white fruits (green apple, pear) with floral and slightly herbal memories, very fine expression of the variety.
Very good balance, well-salted acidity, fresh, greedy and with a certain oiliness note.
Great balance of flavours where green apple and lemon, ripened greengage plum and white flowers are predominating.

Vineyards and terrain
The grapes come from the highest parts of our oldest vineyards, in the districts of Samaniego, Laguardia, and Leza, at an altitude of 580 m above sea level. Poor calcareous/clay soil, on south facing slopes. The subsoil is made up of various layers of white rock.
The grapes are destemmed and pressed mechanically. Some hours low temperature maceration
The grape must ferments on the lees in stainless steel vats for 24 days at a temperature of 15-16°C.
Filtered only for tartaric stabilisation process.
The wine is then kept in the vats until it is bottled.
