Mechanical night harvest (to preserve freshness of the grape). Exclusively juice from the first press in pneumatic press. Alcoholic Fermentation controlled at 17oC(62,60oF) in stainless steel vats. Must settling and cold stabilisation before bottling.
Prefermentative Maceration: Cold skin contact maceration for 8 – 12 hours.
It has a lovely straw yellow colour with a steely green tint and clear aromas which combine a variety of flavours such as green apples, grapefruit lemon zest, medlars and lychees together with hints of moos and hay and a touch of aniseed coming through. It is very well structured with perfectly balanced acidity which gives the wine great freshness. Full bodied. Long and complex finish revealing an array of flavours ending with that typical Verdejo bitter touch.
It goes perfectly with smooth cheeses, spicy rice (paella) and of course, with all kinds of fish and seafood.
