CRAFTING AND AGING
40-year old bush vines cultivated in a privileged area of El Salnés, near to the town of Cambados and the Atlantic coast. Hand harvested. Maceration with the skins in small tanks at a controlled temperature over 4 days, prior to a gentle pressing and gentle fermentation at 16ºC over three weeks. Once the wine has been assembled, expert and delicate work with the lees takes place to give the wine depth and presence on the palate. A very noble grape variety that reaches its peak expression aer three months rest in bottle prior to its release to market.
LOOK: Bright straw yellow with green highlights.
AROMA & PALATE: Very elegant and intense on the nose; the notes of ripe apricot stand out, along with white owers and some pear enveloped in a very attractive salinity. On the palate it is broad and fresh, with intense notes of stone fruits. Unctuosity and sweetness from work with the lees, and the long, fruity nish that is typical of the variety. A long aertaste with a pleasant saline avour that envelopes it all.
