After manual selection of the best grapes, gentle pressing and careful débourbage, the must ferments in new French-oak casks in contact with the lees for a few months, with weekly lees stirring so that these remain in suspension, protecting the wine from oxidation and increasing its roundness in the mouth. Finally, it is fined, filtered and bottled with no prior cold stabilization treatments.
VALSERRANO WHITE BF 2018
Our “Viura” white grape comes from vines over 30 years’ old planted in the highest areas of our vineyards, with the poorest soil and good ventilation and exposure of the vine plants to the sun which results in the best grapes. In the 2018 vintage we have added a small proportion of young Chardonnay grapes which we hope will give us some good results in the future.
COLOUR: Clear, bright straw-yellow with very light hues.
AROMAS: Initially nuances of fine herbs, elderflower and white fruit. Then it gains in intensity in the glass with reminders of peach skin, grapefruit and a slight hint of fresh herbs such as sage, basil….
MOUTH: A smooth, syrupy attack and good body. On the palate it has a smooth mouth-feel with hints of pears in syrup. Overall finely balanced with a long, fresh, elegant finish.
Bottled in February 2019, it requires a few months bottle ageing to gain in complexity.
