This is the first year that the indigenous variety of Callet has been used, after skilful blending with the Premsal, to produce this young, white wine.
Fermented at low temperatures and aged on its lees for a period of 3 months, to produce a fresh and elegant varietal wine.

HARVEST: Grapes are carefully hand picked using small 10kg boxes and are chilled in a chamber upon arrival at the winery.  Manual selection of the best grapes then takes place on a bed of dry ice to prevent oxidation. Cold  maceration of the Premsal grapes at 12º over a period of 10 hours in a carbonic atmosphere. After pressing, clearing takes place in special tanks followed by fermentation at 17º.  Fermented and aged over lees in stainless tanks of 7,000 litres for around 3 months.
