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 BLANCO BARRICA 2020
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.
COLOUR: Bright, clear, pale yellow colour.
AROMAS: Intense aroma son the nose with reminders of fresh hay and herbs like sage, basil, fennel and hints of aniseed. When swirled in the glass the fresh hay and plant aromas are enhanced, mingling with floral and citrus nuances.
MOUTH: A pleasing, fresh attack, but with backbone, body and glycerine. In the middle palate it remains fresh and persistent, with elegant creaminess and a long, lingering finish with reminders of a cocktail of citrus fruits.
Bottled in February 2021, it requires a few months bottle ageing to gain in complexity.
