Production: Dry white wine, varietal of Pedro Xímenez, made through a process of Slow Fermentation in oak cask from the must of over ripe grapes sourced from their own Estate.
Obtained from hand selected 100% Pedro Xímenez grapes, the result of a large and complex process of elaboration. Overripe grapes, hand harvested 21 days over the conventional harvest. Fermented with its own skins in 300-liter French Oak barrels, adding 30 liters each day in each barrel, this way, the yeasts can transform the natural sugars from the overripe grapes into alcohol, this process lasting more than 15 days.
Intense aging on lees for 9 months in French oak barrels and subjected to a controlled gentle “battonage system”. The result is a great aged wine with a huge potential to develop, improving greatly in bottle, under optimal conditions it can go on developing over the next 15 years.
Tasting Notes: Clean with an intense golden colour. Nose marked by the notes of French oak intermixed with aromas of raisins, dried plums. Does not present oxidation nor any stridency, quite harmonious and balanced. Full bodied, smooth, mouth filling palate, toasty flavours, hints of natural sweetness and acidity. Aftertaste of ripe fruit and dry nuts, persistent and rich.
