Bright yellow colour. Intense aromas of grapefruit and lemon, grilled hazelnut with a mineral touch. On the palate, a soft butter texture mixed with alive varietal fruit. The intensity is enhanced by the excellent acidity. The aftertaste is very long with an intense finish. The balance between alcohol and acidity is impressive and gives the wine a freshness, a length and an ageing potential not commonly found in white Chilean wines.

To Serve; French: Quenelles de brochet sauce Nantua ( Pike meat balls with Nantua sauce). Chilean: Ostiones a la Parmesana ( scallops cooked in oven with parmesan cheese).

Hand harvested in small, 10 kg, boxes. The grapes are sent at night by truck to Vina Aquitania winery in Santiago. The low night temperatures allow for perfect transport conditions.

Whole bunch pressing in a pneumatic press.

Fermentation in French oak barrels (25% new, 75% one and two years old).

After the first fermentation part of the crop undergoes malolactic fermentation. The total crop is aged 10 months in French oak barrels with lees stirring twice a week and no racking.
