The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards grown according to organic growing criteria in a balanced, caring and sustainable way. The vineyards’ soils carry great importance, being very active with good biological conditions which favour a fast assimilation of reincorporated organic matter. This enables full terroir expression.

After rigorous ripeness testing, the winery’s technical crew determine the optimal moment to pick and begin the harvest in the first week of September. The picking is done at night to avoid any oxidation of the juices and to preserve the subtlety of the aromas. After the grapes have arrived at the cellars, the free-run juices, coming from gentle pneumatic pressing, are settled with the help of the must chiller. The resulting clear must is racked and then fermented at a controlled temperature to bring out the wine’s optimal aromatic expression. When the fermentation is finished, the wine is racked and kept on its fine lees, thus protecting it from oxidation and bringing extra body and smoothness to the wine. The fining, stabilization and filtering processes before bottling are carried out with the greatest care in order to preserve all of the wine’s character.
A straw-yellow colour with a green tinge. Intensely aromatic with notes of tropical fruit enveloped by characteristic Verdejo vegetal aromas, such as box-bush and fern.
Well-defined fruit flavours linger on the palate enhanced by good acidity.
Excellent with rice dishes or vegetables, fish, shellfish, as well as with fromage frais or soups.
