Vineyard Management
The vineyards are trellised to vertical shoot position to ensure the bunches always have good light. Irrigation is regulated for good vegetative growth followed by good ripening and fruit
concentration (RDI). Different clones have been planted for greater complexity. Each clone is harvested separately at the time of its optimal ripeness.

Vinification
20% of the grapes were cold macerated for 18 hours at temperatures under 5ºC. The rest were crushed and immediately pressed. Free-run and low pressures were used to
produce the Reserve level, in order to ensure high fruit concentration and a good acidity balance, which is essential to this style of fresh and crispy Sauvignon Blanc. Highly fined musts fermented allow good fruit development and retention. Some at
low temperatures (10-11ºC) work on its lees is done before its fining.

This wine has a brilliant yellow color with green hues. Its intense aroma is a fragrant blend of citrus fruit and maracuya with a herbaceous backdrop typical of this variety. On the palate, it is concentrated, with a pleasant acidity that highlights its freshness,
