The low yielding vineyards are cultivated in compliance with ecologically sustainable management practices.

Skin contact to extract aromas. Fermentation took place part in stainless steel between 18-20C and part in new French oak. Clarification by gravity. Matured on the lees for a few months with battonage. Fining with bentonite.
It has an expressive aroma, with alternative impressions that bring memories of exotic fruits together with pepper, orange, jasmine, herbs and lemon.
