What this wine tells us
The winery’s style is clearly defined and personal in each wine, moving away from typical stereotypes of current whites. Without ceasing to be commercial, it does represent a style of wines that is rather unsuitable for those who look for lightness and merely fruity aromas. It should not be served too cold; at first it shows its more vegetal and somewhat roasted side, but not the typical roasted oak aroma. Then we perceive an aperture towards herbs and nuts. On the palate, it is tasteful, with balanced acidity and an oaky background, which usually gives it a certain flavor and tenacity.

Fantastic with marinated tuna.

Trivia
It is named after the wines that were made from a mixture of white varieties in the 17th century in the northern part of the Island.
