the highest plot within the Ygay Estate, located at 485 meters altitude. Itís 100% Viura from 60-year-old vines harvested on October 6, cold-fermented for 30-40 days and aged for 19 months in new French oak barriques, with no malolactic.

I feel more balance and better integration of the oak with the wine in recent vintages

Beautiful spring fruits abound: sweet quince, citrus notes (almost like lemon icing) and plenty of orchard fruits enmesh on the palate with a touch of earthiness and lemon grass on the finish. The final note, however, brings the palate back to the fresh stream water running over granite.
