WINEMAKING: the bunches of grapes are de-stalked and squeezed mechanically and left to stand for 5 hours at low temperature. The squeezed juice or must, together with the lees, ferments in stainless steel tanks for 20 days at 16°C. It is kept stable using a cooling system.

TASTING: Pale and bright in colour with greenish hues. Aromas of fresh fruit and freshly cut grass, with a fine and elegant expression of the variety. Very fresh and balanced in the mouth, provides a fruity and warm equilibrium of flavours.

PAIRING: This wine is highly appetising with salads, seafood, different soups and creams, steamed or fried fish, boiled or grilled vegetables, poultry and smoked meats, savoury snacks and desserts.

SERVING TEMPERATURE: : 8 – 10 ºC
