White Wine – DO Empordà
This wine is made from grapes grown in vineyards of White Grenache and Macabeo situated on slate slopes from where it is possible to see the sea and Canigó Mountains, which are covered in snow for a great part of the year.
Its name (“Of Snow” in Catalan) and the snowflakes that decorate the label are inspired by this unique landscape.
The grapes were carefully hand-picked to ensure optimal and uniform ripeness. The must was macerated with the grape skins for ten hours at a temperature of 7º and then run off by gravity and fermented for 21 days in a stainless steel tank at a temperature of 13º until a strength of 10% alcohol was reached; fermentation was completed in light to medium French oak barrels.
The wine was kept in the barrels in contact with the lees for 5 months. It was filtered and stabilized at -3º before being bottled.
White Grenache (85%), Macabeu (15%).
Bright straw colour. Floral aroma, Mediterranean herbs, fennel, rosemary, citrus fruits, with creamy and toasted notes of the oak. The palate offers good concentration and texture, full of flavour, structured, mineral, saline, with a fruity expression and long end taste.
