This delicate white Rioja Alta has a simple, but glistening colour of pale straw yellow. It offers on the nose a mix of fruit aromas reminiscent of apples, lemons and bananas.
A perfect balance in the mouth of acidity and alcohol is helps to offer the pleasant flavours of freshly picked ripe orchard fruits and really is best enjoyed at a temperature of 6-8ºC.

The Wine Making:
Located in Ábalos and San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Rioja Alta with clay and limestone soil, after being hand-picked the grapes are carefully sorted on the selection table, and then whole grapes are destemmed and transferred to a tank for 24 hours of skin-contact maceration.
The tank is refrigerated in order to avoid the onset of spontaneous fermentation. Throughout the maceration, the grapes are gently stirred inside the tank using hydraulic paddles, which homogenise the mixture. In this process, phenolic compounds, which give the wine its fruity character on the nose as well as in the mouth, are extracted from the skin.
The macerated grapes are then sent to a pneumatic press where the must is extracted at low pressure. It is left to settle, without being moved, for 24 hours and is then fermented at a controlled temperature of 15ºC in order to preserve the variety’s aroma characteristics, and to obtain a fresher and fruitier wine, with fermentation lasting for 12 to 14 days.
