Fermented in new, fine-grained, “Allier” oak casks and then left to age on the lees for 18,5 months in the same casks. On June 2017, a batch of 3.600 bottles was bottled, since then they are in the racks of the cellar.
VALSERRANO BLANCO GRAN RESERVA 2015
Our white grapes of the “Viura” and “Malvasía” varieties come from the highest, poorest soils of our old vineyards, where the vines are well-aired and receive plenty of sunshine to produce our best berries.
It is recommended that the wine is allowed to breathe after opening and it should best be served not too cold: 12º-14º.
COLOUR: “Old gold” color with greenish glints with a clear, bright sheen.
AROMAS: Initially, intense, complex nuances from its ageing in fine oak casks, with underlying white truffle coming through. When swirled in the glass, reminders of white cocoa, even ginger, accompanied by notes of toasted pastry cream.
Mouth:A fresh, salty, highly mineral attack. Elegant and unctuous in its passage through the mouth with mineral and creamy sensations. Long, lingering retronasal effect recalling dried fruit, hazelnuts… It will gain in complexity with more bottle time.
