Vi blanc Nívia de Lluna del Celler Mas Llunes

First name

This wine is made from grapes grown in white Garnacha and Macabeo vineyards located on slaty coasts, from where it is possible to see the sea and the mountains of Canigó, snow-covered for much of the year.
Its name (“De neu” in old Catalan) and the snow crystals that adorn the label are inspired by this unique landscape.

 

Elaboration

The grapes were carefully selected by hand at the time of harvest to achieve an optimal and homogeneous degree of ripeness. The must was macerated with the grape skins for ten hours at a temperature of 7º and then drained by gravity and fermented for 21 days in a stainless steel tank at a temperature of 13º until reaching a degree of 10% Vol. alc. ; fermentation was completed in new French oak barrels of medium toast.
The wine remained in the barrels in contact with its lees for five months. Prior to bottling, it was filtered and stabilized at -3º temperature.

Varieties

Grenache white (85%), Macabeu (15%).

Tasting note
