Harvest: Manual. Grapes are carefully transported to the winery in small containers.

Analysis: Alcohol 13.5 % vol. Vinification: The grapes have been harvested by hand during the three first weeks of march and lightly pressed very slowly to allow 6 hours of contact between the juice and the skins. It was then transferred to a stainless steel tank and left to decant until obtaining a high degree of limpidity. The clean juice was transferred to a fermentation of tank and inoculated with selected yeasts (zimaflore VL1) to highlight the natural aroma of the variety. The fermentation has been slow, between 12 and 16 degrees and 50% went to French oak barrels, new, second and third use to end it. No malolactic fermentation at all. Lees has been worked during all the process in the barrels and in the tank as well, 7 months later, both elements were blended, stabilized, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Note: The bright golden-yellow Chardonnay offers a nose as lively as its color. Citrus aromas of mandarin orange and ripe lemons lead the way with fresh pineapple flowing close behind. Subtle notes of honey and butter follow seasoned with a light touch of spicy vanilla, crème anglais and just a hint of smoke. The palate presents good volume with a voluptuousness in harmonious balance with its natural freshness. Tense yet well-rounded and backed by the structure gained with the oak aging. The nervous finish brings with it brilliant tones of citrus and honey sealed with a mineral edge.

Best Enjoyed: Best consumed within four years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
