Winemaking

Tasting Notes

Very fresh aromas of red berries, tropical fruits, and nectarine. On the palate, it presents a slightly mineral taste with notes of white fruit and hints of exotic fruit, like lychee and guava.

Points of Distinction
  • The drought and dry heat in 2017 did not affect the fragrances and fortunately did not allow for too much sugar in the grapes, so the balance on the palate is very smooth and refreshing
  • Sustainable practices since 2015
