WINEMAKING PROCESS: Thiol: A search to a more distinctive aromatic profile. From the selection of the vineyards, we decided to harvest at the peak of maturation. We then left the grapes macerate for four hours before bleeding the must.
The alcoholic fermentation took place at a control temperature of 16ºC for the next 15 days. During the process the juice was at all times protected from the oxygen air to enhance the much-desired thiol aromas.
VINEYARDS: We selected those plots, aged at least 20 years old on stony, clay-ferrous soils at an altitude of 480-600 m.
Colour.- Pale yellow with shiny green hues
Aroma.- Very high intensity , complex, citric aromas, lemon, orange peel, exotic fruits, grapefruit, passion fruit and fresh grass aromas like boxwood. Clean and powerful,with thath thiol profile that we were seeking after.
