THE WINE’S STORY
Manual grape harvest in boxes. Very smooth pressing of the grapes. Static debourbage of the must flower for 24 hours. Transferred to stainless steel vats for its wholly natural and spontaneous fermentation, with locally produced yeasts at a controlled temperature of 17C for 10 days. Then the wine is kept in the vat with its fine lees for a period of two months, endowing the wine with smoothness. Afterwards the sediments are removed, without filtering, stabilising or clarifying, and the wine is bottled. As a result of this, the wine could display some natural precipitations, which would be tartrates, proteins, yeasts, etc.
This wine is paired well with white meats, using sauces that are not overpowering or subtle, salads, sushi, semi-cured or soft cheeses, along with any type of fish dish or seafood.
