"(aged for four months on its lees in stainless steel tanks, with partial malolactic fermentation) Pale gold. Fresh peach, tangerine, melon and a hint of dusty minerals on the highly fragrant nose; a subtle hint of honey emerges slowly. Juicy and focused on the palate, of lingering ripe orchard and pit fruit flavors accented by a bitter citrus pith nuance. Dry and minerally on the finish, which shows very good lift, spicy cut, and strong persistence. Here's a distinctly nervy rendition of the 2015 vintage, which generally produced large-scale, hefty white wines."

Vineyards are located in Galicia (Zone 1) in northwest Spain, near the town of San Pedro de Vilanova in the Valle del Ulla subzone at 225 m (738 ft) elevation. Valle del Ulla is the northernmost and driest of the 5 subzones in Rías Baixas. The vineyard's soil is sandy, which provides good water drainage and heat retention. Valle del Ulla has one of the lowest recorded levels of precipitation in the Rías Baixas region.

After the best bunches are manually selected, the clusters of grapes are de-stemmed and slightly crushed. The must macerates on the skins for 6 to 8 hours at a cool temperature. Fermentation takes place at low temperature with the grapes own indigenous yeast. When fermentation is completed, the wine undergoes partial malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks on the lees for 3 to 5 months before bottling. (2000 cs)
