Three hectares of vines, 30 to 40 years old, which have a yield of 3,000 kg per hectare. The vineyard is located in the area of Santa Maria de Martorelles.
White sand from granite rock. Hot summers and mild winters, with little rain and a lot of sunshine.
The grapes are handpicked during the first half of September. The skins of the crushed grapes remain with the must for 3-4 hours at a temperature between 7º-13ºC (maceration pelliculaire), after which only the first part of the flower must is taken and clarified. The alcoholic fermentation has a duration of 15-20 days at 15 ºC.
Alcohol by volume: 12.5%
The color is pale and shiny with green reflexes.
A crisp wine with aromas of fruit and a floral nose. A well balanced acidity provides for a long and persistent aftertaste.
