Spain’s most internationally famous wine region is renowned for creating top quality wines with exceptional ageing ability. It lies in northern Spain, by the side of the River Ebro from which the region’s name derived. Elegance and poise is the hallmark of the wines shaped in this ancient region. The variety of its soils, together with the combination of modern and traditional growing practices allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines that exhibit different personalities, always within the framework that their long-established Qualified Denominación de Origen demands from them.
Clear straw yellow with greenish hues. It holds a bouquet of white flowers, tangerines, banana, orange peel and other citrus fruits with a subtle hint of passion fruit. On the palate, the wine is clean and silky with an ample aftertaste.
A good companion to seafood, fish or poultry, cooked with summer vegetables.
Harvested at night in early October, cooler temperatures allow the grapes to retain their wonderful aromatic character. Before proper pressing, the run juice with the grapes’ skin is left to macerate for 4 to 6 hours at low temperature. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks between 14 and 15oC. The wine making process is carefully controlled at every stage. The result is a fresh and delicate wine.
