Grape-varieties Verdejo
Soil This vineyard is located on the high terraces of the Corbières in Ribaute. It benefits from a Mediterranean climate, where the daytime heat is balanced by night time coolness due to its average elevation. This promotes aroma development of the grapes during ripening, producing a range of concentrated wines, while maintaining acidity-driven balance. The Verdejo vineyard is planted on marl soils.
Winemaking Harvesting is done by hand, and the grapes are put into crates. The fruit is crushed directly as whole clusters in a pneumatic press with dry ice to protect the juice from oxidation. Subsequent cold stabilisation lasts for between 3 and 5 days at 5°C then alcoholic fermentation starts and lasts for around a week. Temperatures are kept below 16°C.
Tasting Notes Pale yellow with green tints, expressive and intense nose of white flowers, peaches, vanilla and roasted coffee. On the palate, the wine is powerful, very aromatic and ample. It also shows beautiful freshness and a toasted finish with a faint sourness.
