Gaia from Loxarel 2018
Wine made from the sauvignon blanc grape partially fermented in chestnut barrels and clay amphorae
Viticulture and vinification
Organic & biodynamic viticulture.
Elaborated with 100% ecological grapes from vines placed at 700m above sea level, which brings freshness and acidity. This wine macerates partly in clay amphora and partly in chestnut barrels, to get more creaminess and density in the mouth. Gaia represents Mother Earth in Greek mythology, the origin of life.
Sight: Bright soft Straw colour with steely glare. Clean and a bit glyceric.
Nose: Very intense wine with the aromas characteristic of the variety. A lot of tropical and exotic fruit with a lot of citrus on a powerful herbaceous background.
Palate: Fresh and very tasty, with a nice mid-palate, fruity and with a fresh herbs background. Very good acidity, balanced. Good finish with citrus sensations.
6º to 8ºC
