Nose

The Chardonnay base wine offers intense aromatics of white flowers and citrus and a remarkably good length.

Palate

The Pinot Noir counterpart ensures a good acid balance adding structure and complexity to the final blend. In addition the "liqueur de tirage" imparts freshly baked bread aromatics that unfold on the palate, with a soft, creamy finish.

Growing Conditions

This is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, of specially selected clones for sparkling wine production. The grapes were sourced from our vineyards in Tupungato, planted at 5000' elevation.
