TASTING NOTES : Fresh fruity flavours of citrus, green apples and stone fruit, characteristic of the Viura variety. Dry, zesty and easy to drink, it has a nice crisp acidity. Brilliant pale yellow in colour, with an intensely fruity bouquet that makes it an ideal single-variety wine. Very clean and expressive in the mouth, and extremely light on the palate.

ABOUT THE WINERY :  Rubén Provedo is the Technical Director of Bodegas Franco-Españolas. He has technical qualifications in the fields of chemistry, oenology and viticulture, and several postgraduate-level qualifications in the fields of olive-growing and olive-oil production. Rubén has always maintained that wine is a philosophy of life, and the guiding principle of his work is to create wines with soul. The oenologist is responsible for the winemaking process. This process begins in the vineyard, with the selection of the vines that are most suitable for winemaking, followed by the grape-picking, the delivery of the grapes to the winery, and all of the subsequent processes. These include crushing, fermentation, ageing and bottling, followed by the final and most important step: dispatching the wine from the winery and delivering it to the consumer.The winemaking process is complex and time-consuming, and as a result oenologists are highly trained and very skilled at solving problems. The primary task of the oenologist is to monitor the ripening and control the quality of the grapes in the vineyard, in order to make sure they are of sufficient quality for the wine that is to be produced. Once the grapes have been harvested, the oenologist supervises their transportation to the winery and the subsequent processes of crushing, pressing and fermentation; in other words, the transformation of the grapes into must, and the must into wine. The oenologist then mixes the different musts in order to obtain the desired organoleptic qualities (i.e. colour, aroma and flavour) for each of the wines that are to be produced. He or she is also responsible for overseeing the wine’s ageing in barrels and bottles, and supervises the entire process in order to ensure that when you open a bottle, you get maximum enjoyment from the wine.
