Wine Ratings

Description:

Grape varieties: 100% Small Grain Muscat.
Winemaking: Manual vintage in boxes of 20 kgs, selection of clusters at table.
Ageing: Its long ageing over 7 years, takes place in oak casks and in glass vessels, located on open terraces, exposed to the elements, experiencing variations in temperature and light. This results in sweet wines with a marked character of reduction and oxidation.
Primary aromas evolve into more expressive, structured and elegant secondary aromas. After ageing for the first three years in demijohns, the wine is racked to wood vats, where it is left for over three more years. Tranfer into oak barrels one more year to finish the elaboration. Filter before bottling.
