Straw platinum in hue, its welcoming aromatics are steely, mineral and stony, with tart lemon, yellow rose, persimmon, pink berries, and flint. The flavors are floral and long, with hints of tropical bushes, fragrant citrus and stone fruit, and fresh saline air. There is a density to the wine, which is full and concentrated, yet bright acidity and freshness of floral and fruit flavors are the focus. The Macabeo grapes are pressed whole cluster and juice is cold settled for a day before being racked into half new oak barrels and half stainless steel. To encourage freshness and vibrancy of aromatics and flavors, this wine is lightly filtered to avoid malolactic fermentation and bottled after a few months ageing on the lees.
