Varietal: 100% Chardonnay. Whole clusters are pressed, and then 100% fermented in 500 L French oak barrels with natural yeasts at low temperatures. Wild yeasts. Aged for 14 months in French oak. 30% does not undergo malolactic fermentation. First, second and third use barrels used.
Taste: Greenish-yellow color in the glass with a nose that offers ripe white fruit aromas such as pears and white peach that are interwoven with delicate citrus and floral notes, such as honeysuckle and jasmine. The palate shows rich and concentrated apple and apricot flavors with a light note of minerality. Full-bodied, bright and fruity with a fascinating undertone of spice and cream. The wine finishes long and complex with crisp, mineral acidity.
