Andy's Tasting Notes

Terrific value.  A white wine with a lot going on – aromatic peach, pear and apple fruit with intriguing spice, vanilla and balsamic hints.  The oak ageing adds a subtle sheen and gloss to the wine without adding any harsh or aggressive overtones.  A white Rioja with personality and poise.

Production notes: A manual selection of grapes at their optimum point of ripeness. Once in the winery, the grapes were cold macerated for 6–8 hours to create more structure and flavour to the finished wine. The grapes were then lightly pressed and the juice transferred to new American oak casks for fermentation for between 15 and 20 days at cellar temperature, between 16 and 20°C. The young wine remains on its lees and stirred periodically so that they hang in suspension. The wine is regularly tasted to assess its flavour evolution, until we decide on the optimum moment to rack it and bottle it.
