Autumn and Winter were very rainy. Spring had a rainy start followed by a drier period that contributed to the good development of the berries. Despite the initial pressure, it was a year without major phytosanitary problems, in which the grapes arrived at the winery in good condition and well-ripened. We began the harvest on 18 September.
Integrated Production (SATIVA certified).
Manual harvest, pneumatic pressing of whole grapes. Cold decanting of the must for 48 hours.
75% of the batch fermented in stainless steel and the rest in a concrete egg.

Unique and complex aroma, dominated by the citrus fruits characteristic of the Loureiro grape variety.
Dominated by a vibrant acidity with a long, lingering finish. A great capacity for evolution is expected.
