Elaboration

This is a wine in which we perceive several aromas ranging between fruit and flower, characteristic of the grape variety. The oak flavours are also perfectly balanced. In the mouth, we have searched for elegance and a true expression of the grape variety. The grapes come from our Muntanyans estate vineyard with vines over 70 years old. We work organically and biodynamically, taking care of the environment. After ripening checks to determine how long we need to wait for the optimum harvesting date, we pick the grapes by hand to keep them intact as much as possible. Once in the winery, we gently press the grapes to separate off the free-run juice which we use to make this wine. The wine ferments in oak barrels and it remains there for the time we consider necessary. During this time, we carry out several battonages in order to mature the wine on the lees left over from fermentation, striving for more complexity and creaminess. After several tastings in the winery, we prepare the wine for bottling. As this wine is full of character, we keep a check on and minimise the fining and filtering processes in order to keep this character intact. Once bottled, we let it rest and age in bottle for a minimum of 6 months until it reaches the customer, at the height of its expressivity.

Aspect

A pale yellow colour with greenish flecks and a bright appearance.

Aroma

In the nose, there is an obvious mix of white fleshed fruit, citric fruit such as green apple, broom, rosemary and nuts and dried fruit with a subtle hint of oak which reminds us of cinnamon.

Taste

In the mouth, this wine is mouth-filling and structured and yet at the same time refreshing, adding a lot of fruit to the palate coupled with a lingering aftertaste. The wine’s body and structure are very well integrated and defined.
