Vinification: The different grape varieties were handpicked between the two last weeks of February. The grapes were destemmed and pressed in a pneumatic press. The juice remained on the skins for an average of 6 hours before gently extracted at low pressure and statically decanted in stainless steel tanks until limpidity between 100 and 250 NTU is obtained. The clean must is then transferred to a fermentation tank and inoculated with selected yeasts to highlight the natural aromas of the grape. Alcoholic fermentation took place at 14 16 degrees (57 61 degrees F) and allowed to remain in the tanks with carbonic gas and daily lees stirring for an additional ten days. The finished wine was stabilized for proteins and tartaric acid, filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Note: This 2011 wine proclaims its youth through its very brilliantly pristine light golden color with a nose that expresses its all the potency of its youthfulness. Gooseberries and cherimoyas are punctuated by a floral note backed by white peach, green pear, and yellow grapefruit, all heightened by a stony-edged mineral accent. The palate starts frank and clean and immediately develops a sensation of well-rounded volume that envelops the natural freshness and mineral tones inherent in its origins. Just the right balance stimulates a sense of harmony between the crisp texture, the elegant structure, and the mineral aromatic finish.

Best Enjoyed: Best consumed within two years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
