Production

With an average temperature of 22°C and ow rainfall (600mm per year). During summer, this valley presents high temperature range, having low temperature at night. Alluvial, medium-high depth soil, uniform loamy-muddy texture. Good drainage, moderate permeability and high fertility. Mediterranean with rainy winters, warm, dry summers and a broad oscillation between day and night temperatures, all of which contribute to a good vine development. The soil presents good drainage, high fertility, and tremendous agricultural aptitude. The soils tend to be alluvial in origin of medium depth. The grapes that went into this wine were picked by hand at early-April, when the fruit had reached its optimal degree of ripeness. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks, in our Las Palmeras winery. During this stage, the temperature was carefully managed to remain cool (around 15ºC) without pumpovers and with delicate lees stirring, in order to reach the desired results. Finally, the wine was fined with bentonite and cold-stabilized before bottling to prevent tartaric precipitations in the bottle.

 

Tasting notes

Pale yellow in colour with a nose that presents fruity aromas recalling apricot and papaya with honey and Honeysuckle and Jasmine notes. The refreshing palate shows this is a wine full of character, with good concentration and balance.

 

Food match

Due to its soft texture and its complex and concentrated flavours, this wine is ideal for serving with grilled escalopes with a tropical reduction, grilled fish such as Conger with a cream sauce and some desserts such as papayas with cream.
