100% Sauvignon Blanc produced from organic grapes. The wine is certified with the CCPAE quality mark from the Consell Català de la Producció Agraria y Ecologicala (Catalan Council of Organic Agricultural Production).
The grapes are picked in the vineyards by hand, and then undergo selection on a sorting table. We use only free run juice from a direct gentle pressing without maceration on the skins. Static settling for 36 hours. When the wine is clear it is transferred into a stainless steel tank for the start of fermentation. It then goes into 300 litre medium toasted French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 previously used for one vintage and 1/3 used for two vintages). Fermentation continues in the barrels with the temperature constantly controlled at 13-15 ºC. Batonnage (stirring up) is carried out from time to time to ensure that the lees stay in suspension and therefore in greater contact with the wine.
On the nose: Very intense fruit, citrus and tropical aromas such as pineapple and mango which blend in with the fresh herbal notes, fennel, mint and asparagus. White Flowers. Aromas of Mediterranean woodland. Salinity and a mineral trace - limestone. Elegant oaky backdrop with subtle smoky hints.
On the palate: Smooth on entry, full and medium bodied on the palate. The tropical fruit and citrus and herbal aromas come through again. A saline touch and very refreshing acidity on the finish. Long, resounding aftertaste. A stylish ensemble.
Especially good with salads, asparagus, tomatoes and green peppers. Cheeses such as feta, goat cheese or mozzarella. Great as an aperitif with olives and some cured meats. Shellfish, fish. Works really well with Japanese food. To bring out the beauty of this wine, we recommend serving it at 10-12 °C in a large balloon wine glass to enable it to aerate and express all its aromas.
