Harvest with optimal aromatic maturation, light pressing in the absence of oxygen to avoid oxidizing aromas, fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperature to preserve aromas and subsequent aging on fine lees for four months in steel tanks and French oak barrels where the lees

“Enticingly priced, this impressive blend of mostly Tempranillo Blanco would confound most people in a blind tasting. Grown at 800 metres, it's zesty and crunchy, yet exotic at the same time"

By and for the white wine The obsession of the winery is the search for the freshness and longevity of white wines and for this we have the best technology in the production. We vinify each small plot separately, from the entrance of the grapes, either by selection table in boxes of 18 kg or by reception hopper. The way in which the grapes enter the winery depends on their state of health and the destination of the grapes.

One of the most important elements of the winery are the pneumatic inert dams, made with a membrane that injects nitrogen to prevent the must from oxidising. In this way we respect the character of the variety and the peculiarities of the estate.
Production and ageing In a normal year we can have up to 20 different vinifications depending on the variety, estate or area where our grapes come from. In this way we get exactly what we want from our wines, which is the maximum expression of their terroir.

We make almost all of our wines in 3,500 litre oak casks from Normandy with a very light toasting so that the varietal and mineral character of our native varieties produces unique and respectful, complex and expressive wines, which have a great longevity thanks to the extraordinary acidity levels with which we work.
