The white grapes of the “Viura” and “Malvasía” varieties of the winery Viñedos y Bodegas La Marquesa come from the highest, poorest soils of our old vineyards, where the vines are well-aired and receive plenty of sunshine to produce our best berries.
Fermented in new, fine-grained, “Allier” oak casks and then left to age on the lees for 28 months in the same casks. On March 15th of 2012, a batch of 3,400 bottles was bottled, since then they are in the racks of the cellar. It will be at its best for drinking from 2015.
It is recommended that the wine is allowed to breathe after opening and it should best be served not too cold: 10º-12º. Intense yellow with golden tones. Clean, bright and with a light oxidation. Before swirling in the glass there are elegant aromas of balsamic herbs as fennel, peppermint, sage… After swirling, intense perfume aromas appear as cedar, honey and nuts such as hazelnuts, sweet almond… Soft, glyceric and silky mouth-feel. Its passage through the mouth brings back reminders of aromatic herbs, spicy nuances and complexity. It has a long, fresh and powerful aftertaste with good acidity and citrus & mineral reminders.
