Grapes come from their own vineyards in Tupungato, Alto Gualtallary, by the foothills of the Andes at 4000 ft. altitude. The vineyards enjoy a marked thermal amplitude. Gravel and sand soil.
Manual harvest during the first and second week of February. Cold maceration at 8°C for 4 hs to extract aromas and flavours. Fermentation with selected yeast at a maximum temperature of 15°C for 15 days. Second fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Greenish yellow colour with delicate bubbles. Lime and apple aromas. Fresh and fruity with crisp natural acidity.
Great as an aperitif, lighter fish dishes and on its own.
