Vinification

The grapes are hand-picked in order to preserve all their freshness and aromatic potential. All the stages of the vinification process are carried out at low temperature in order to preserve the aromatic potential and freshness of the fruit.

Aging

Half the vintage is matured in one-year-old oak barrels for about nine months to achieve a harmonious balance between oaky notes and the freshness of the fruit. 25% new oak and 75% 1-2 year-old barrels.

Tasting notes

The aromatic power of Chardonnay is immediately apparent in voluptuous tropical fruit and yellow peach aromas, followed on airing by notes of gingerbread and toasted brioche. The palate is pleasantly full, the attack reveals the aromatic intensity of tropical fruit such as pineapple and passion fruit. The round and dense mid-palate displays a range of tropical fruit flavors together with notes of toasted almond and mild spices such as cumin and cinnamon, building to an attractively long finish on elegant touches of toasted hazelnut, mild spice and pineapple.
