Pale yellow color. Very intense aromas of passion fruit, grapefruit, lime, and white peach. In the mouth, this is a fresh, balanced, highly vivacious and persistent wine.

VINEYARDS

Daytime harvest, in which oxidation is avoided, takes place in the third week of February. Cooling and gentle pressing are carried out. A pellicular maceracion is performed in order to transfer varietal traits from the skin to the must. Alcoholic fermentation is done at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve primary aromas.
