Clean and bright, greenish-yellow colour and golden reflections. Aromatically, it stands out for its marked varietal character and intensity, with white fruit notes -delicious golden apple and ripe pear- as well as stone fruit, particularly apricot, and hints of lemon peel. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, with excellent structure, intensity and balance. It retains a saline aftertaste and a long, lingering finish.
Founded in the 19th Century, growing in the 20th Century and still passionate in the 21th Century. We extract the best from the wise oenological tradition: manufacturing of our barrels, racking by candlelight and long ageing. Combined with the most advanced winemaking technology.
