Tasting Notes The color is straw yellow, with silvery highlights. The nose has aromas of white fruits. In the mouth, it is the freshness of the wine that stands out. Good balance with a long and weathered finish.

Winemaking After directly pressing the whole grapes the juice is transfered to stainless tanks. The must is then put in oak barrels by gravity and naturally starts the alcoholic fermentation. The aging occurs on the lees for 10 months (25% new oak).
