Winemaker's comments

This wine has a brilliant yellow color with green hues. Its intense aroma is a fragrant blend of citrus fruit and passion fruit with a slightly herbal backdrop typical of this variety. On the palate, it is concentrated, with a pleasant acidity that highlights its freshness, firm structure and excellent persistence.

Vinification

20% of the grapes were cold macerated for 18 hours at temperatures under 5ºC. The rest were crushed and immediately pressed. Free-run and low pressures were used to produce the Reserve level, in order to ensure high fruit concentration and a good acidity balance. Fined musts fermented at low temperatures (13-14 °C) allow good fruit development and retention. Work on its lees is done before its fining.

Potential aging

2-3 years
