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.
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.
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.
Enjoy with baked fish, with or without sauce and seafood, as well as fresh and medium-cured cheese, foie-gras, rice dishes and pasta. Best enjoyed at 12ºC.
