Delicate nose with stone fruit aromas (white peach, nectarine), accompanied by light notes of brioche, raw nuts and vanilla. The full-bodied palate brings creaminess and texture, while a vibrant acidity offers a refreshing balance. Long, mainly stone fruit finish.

AT THE WINERY
Grape sorting on a vibrating conveyor belt table. Fermentation starts in stainless steel tanks and before its completion 1/3 is transferred to French oak barrels (350L, 1st and 2nd use, light toast), 1/3 in tulip-shaped concrete vats, while the rest remains in the tanks. The wine stays for 6 months on fine lees. Blending of the 3 parts. For this vintage, 20% of the total quantity was fermented with indigenous yeasts using the “pied de cuve” technique. Those grapes were picked and pressed in vessels at our vineyard; the fermentation started right there, taking advantage of the population of native yeasts present.
2021 is the first vintage to embrace our endeavours with indigenous yeasts in all our wines, as well as the first introducing our Organic certification.
