"This wine is from Lomas de Leyda estate in the Leyda Valley. It is clean, bright, and straw-coloured. The aromas are seductive and refreshing with subtle notes of citrus fruit peel, accompanied by fresh pear, white peach and honey flavours, followed by an expressive minerality. It displays a persistent finish thanks to its vibrant acidity. This wine is ideal with white meat, seafood, fish, pasta dishes and cheese."

Producer: Sibaris

Grape Varieties : Chardonnay

Vinification: Once the grapes arrive at the cellars, the best clusters are selected and the whole clusters placed directly in pneumatic presses. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks - filled with must and injected with selected yeasts. After two days, the must was transferred to 225, 228 and 300-litre capacity French oak barrels, where the fermentation took place during a period of some 14 days. The wine was kept in the barrels for nine months and was subject to batonage, so as to move the lees periodically in order to lend complexity and creaminess to our wine.

ABV: 13.5%

Closure: Screw Cap
