Vinification

In good years we wait for grapes to be attacked by botritys cinerea. Grapes are selected in the vineyard, picked by hand and collected in small crates. Then they are gently placed into the press and submitted to cryomaceration. Controlled temperature fermentation: ageing sur lies from 180 to 240 days. Bottle ageing from 4 to 5 month.

Organoleptic characteristics

ASPECT

Intense yellow, embelished by golden highlights.

Aroma

Elegant, intense and lingering. Complex citrus fruit and spicy hints nicely mix with notes of tropical fruit and warm honey overtones.

Sumptuous on the palate, bursting with a wealth of flavours. A subtle mineral hint creates a harmonious dialogue between the flavour of yellow apricots, acacia honey and almond paste.
