Grape Varietals: 70% Viura, 20% Malvasia 10% Garnacha Blanca

Farming: Organic

Light gold color with brilliant lemon reflections. On the nose, aromas of wild flowers, tropical fruits, honeysuckle, savory herbs and discrete oak spice plume from the glass. The palate is richly textured from the bâtonnage, though impeccably balanced by a lithe acidity. Fleshy fruit flavors alongside beeswax, confit lemons and subtle oak notes flow into an elegant, refined and persistent finish.

Manual harvest. Destemmed and pressed. Fermented in temp controlled inox tank. Wine is aged in 2nd use French oak. No malolactic fermentation on account of the warm vintage so as to preserve the wine's natural acidity. 6 months on the lees with a weekly battonage. Followed by 4 months aging in concrete tank. Minimal sulfites
