ORIGIN OF THE GRAPE

Alcoholic Fermentation: Spontaneous with wild yeast, around 50 days at a temperature of 18 ºC in American medium toasted oak barrels.
White selected from a small estate situated in San Vicente de la Sonsierra at the foot of the Cantabria mountain range. Planted in 1971, of the viura variety and without trained vegetation. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in new American oak barrels with the winery’s unique toasting, and aged for 9 months on its lees, with the bâtonnage technique (stirring the lees) being performed each day.
By tilting the glass approximately 60 degrees and on a white background, we observe golden hues evolving with an exquisite brightness and richness.
Holding the glass still, on the nose we can sense aromas of new wood, intertwined with peach. As we swirl the glass, the wood aroma disappears, giving rise to a powerful cocktail of peach and banana aromas together with hints of nuts and roasted scents.
On the palate it is a powerful wine, full bodied and marked by a fleshy and abundant, yet not so polymerised tannin, making the touch sensations long and silky.
In the attack we find flavours of banana and peach, intertwining as the wine moves towards the mid-palate with nuts and reminiscent hints of vanilla.
