A pale yellow straw introduces a refreshing nose of prickly pear, green
grapefruit, green melon and gooseberries. Broom flowers and some aniseed
touches are enhanced mineral notes.

Vinification: The grapes have been handpicked on 16 of February, in small 12
kg containers. In the vineyard thereʼs a first selection where only healthy
and perfectly ripe bunches are harvested. A second selection is made just
before entering the press, destemmed and under gas protection. In the press
the fruit have around 6 hours of maceration, and then start the press time
with low pressure and few rotations to obtain the cleanest and clearer juice
as possible. The rape is decanted, and once clean, fermented with selected
yeasts. Temperatures are totally controlled, between12 and14°C, to keep all
the potential. From fermentation until the end of the process, wine is in
contact with its fine lees, removing them twice a week to get better volume
and character. 10% of the blend has been fermented in old french barrels in
order to give more structure and complexity.
Tasting Note: A pale yellow straw introduces a refreshing nose of prickly
pear, green grapefruit, green melon and gooseberries. Broom flowers and some
aniseed touches are enhanced mineral notes. The mouth is well balanced
between freshness and texture. The good volume is backed by a precise
acidity and layered by the mineral touch. This same touch allows a vibrant
finish, where the fresh fruits express the Limari side of the variety.
