Wine making process
The white wine of this range is to continue with the faithful portrayal of the region and its identity. It is elaborated in its entirety with the Chardonnay variety and for that we fermented in barrels for six months and assembled in concrete tanks. After clarifying we keep it in bottle for its refinement. This wine has a huge aging potential thanks to its acidity and ph.
Vineyards in “Baja Montaña” area in Navarra appellation, of Chardonnay variety, a variety specially adapted to our terroir where they reach a maturation and an optimal balance. These are vineyards of poor, sandy and deep soil with good structure and very good drainage. The pruning in double cordon of high trellis is one of the most important tasks that we perform in the field where we maintain a large leaf surface looking for the necessary “freshness” that the Chardonnay grape brings.
