VITICULTURE: Produced from a selection of Albariño grapes from our 35-hectare-vineyard Arantei (35 Ha).“Arantei” is the best example of a single vineyard in the region. The vineyard is located in theold river bed, and pebbles are the main feature of this mineral and rich soil. Arantei is alsoone of the vineyards with the most sun-hours in the Rías Baixas region.

WINEMAKING: The wine is the result of the careful and manual selection of grapes from the Aranteivineyard. 100% of the grapes are macerated before pressing (4 to 6 hours at a controlledtemperature of 8-10ºC). The fermentation takes place in stainless-steel tanks at controlledtemperature using only the indigenous yeasts from the vineyard. Once the fermentationhas finished, the wine stays in the tank with its fine lees for six months, with regular andcontinuous stirring-up of the lees during this time.

TASTING NOTES: The wine has bright and clean green golden tones. On the nose it is complex, mineral,fruity and floral with harmonious notes of fresh herbs and citrus. In the mouth it is rich,with abundant fruit and great acidity, rounded with a creamy character coming from itsaging on the fine lees. It has a long, persistent and fresh finish.

AGING POTENTIAL: Best enjoyed now and over the next 5 years from vintage (kept in good conditions).
