  • ViticultureAbrir o Cerrar

    Created from Albariño grapes, grown exclusively on our Arantei vineyard, where we obtain the required alcohol content, acidity and extract to benefit from barrique ageing.

  • ElaborationAbrir o Cerrar

    The grapes are macerated before pressing (6 hours at a controlled temperature of 10ºC) to achieve a good aromatic extraction. After that, the grapes are pressed and once the must is clear, it is fermented in Allier French-oak barriques (225 liters). The wine is aged in the same barriques for another 6 months with regular “battonage” to stir up the fine lees. Finally the wine is put in stainless steel tanks, where the oak and the fruit integrate before bottling.

  • Tasting NotesAbrir o Cerrar

    The wine is a golden yellow colour with green tones. It is very aromatic with a good balance between fruit and oak. It shows aromas candy, coconut, vanilla, toasted notes, as well as peach, green apple and citrus fruits. In the mouth it has a creamy character; it is balanced, with the tannins from the barrique rounded out by the fruit. A fresh and creamy finish with toasty notes from time in barrique.
