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.
Light yellow with golden hits, a well balanced aromas of fruit and floral tones. The palate is intense with a pleasing finish.
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. Run juice is left for 4 – 6 hours to macerate at a cool temperature to get the most out of its aromas. The wine making process is carefully controlled at every stage. The result is a fresh and delicate wine.
