Production: only 80 bottles
Excellent balance, length and complexity. A delicious, intriguing and interesting sweet wine.
White Grenache sweet wine from breaded grapes, fermented with local yeast and final fermentation without intervention.
Elaboration; The grapes are harvested when they are not yet ripe and are spread on “reeds” for about three weeks for breading. During the second week, a vat is prepared in the vineyard using the yeast’s own yeast. Raisins are collected and pressed. The must is fermented in a stainless steel tank with the inoculum of the vat foot. Fermentation stops naturally when the yeast cannot survive due to the concentration of alcohol.
Tasting note: Color between gold and amber, deep, very complex. Overripe yellow plum, mashed apple, overripe pear, yeast, vanilla, cedar wood, “flower”, maggi, umami. In the mouth it is a rich and sweet wine, with body, balanced acidity, alcohol present, ripe fruit, overripe, and even canned. Peach, pineapple, honey, quince, toast, vanilla, raisins, resinous, oxidation, medicinal, slightly volatile. Excellent balance, length and complexity. A delicious, intriguing and interesting sweet wine!
