Intense bouquet with lactic hints as well as very ripe fruit (peaches, pears, apricots) and certain spices (cinnamon, anise). On the palate the wine has a wonderfully balanced acidity, alcoholic strength and complexity with rich, perfumed and intricate flavours that gain intensity in the mouth.
Around 2,000 bottles only of this powerful white are produced each vintage. The blend of Viura, Malvasia, Garnacha Blanca, Jaen, Moscatel and Torrontés are fermented together in large French oak barrels before resting on its lees for 12 months before bottling.
