VINEYARDS AND WINE
Old Vines of Cartoixà, name as the variety is called in the area, cultivated in organic farming located in La Nou de Gaia, a small town located in the Tarragona province about 4 km straight to the Mediterranean Sea. The soils are generally sandy loam of low fertility. The grapes ripen perfectly thanks to the warm weather and the marinade; the marinade is the sea breeze early in the morning blowing in our vineyards, avoiding excess heat in grapes and causing a sanitizing effect on the vineyard.
Once harvested the grapes are destemmed and pressed. The must is carried to stainless steel tanks and allowed to stand for 24 hours at low temperature.
The fermentation time is between 18 and 20 days at a temperature of 14 to 15ºC. Once finished the fermentation lees are stirred once a week to get smoothness and unctuousness. The duration of aging in lees for harvest 2016 is 8 months.
Yellow with golden highlights. Aroma varietal blend of fruity notes mature (yellow peaches, ripe apple, dried apricots…), nut notes (hazelnuts, almonds…) and sweet nuances (honey, cinnamon, caramel, quince…). Step wide mouth, structured and fresh with nerve because of its citrus touches. To highlight the mouth end of the presence of nuts and long aftertaste.
