Vinification

Pelicullar maceration and fermentation are carried out in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged for 8-10 months in oak barrels, giving it an aging potential of five years.

Taste

Cocktails and pairings

Duck confit with fig sauce and a veal burger with spicy mayo.
Serve between 15-17°C.
