for 8-12 hours. Alcoholic fermentation controlled at 17 ºC in stainless steel vats. Bottled with yeast and additional sugar in Champagne style bottles in which the second fermentation takes place. Bottle ageing on its lees in a Moorish underground cellar at constant 12ºC. Disgorgement and final corking

Ageing: 12 – 20 months on riddling racks before disgorgement.

Tasting Notes: Bright lemon, straw-yellow color. Slow-evolving fine and small bubbles rising to form an attractive crown. Clean, intense aromas of green apples, citrus and hints of jammy fruit and nuts. On the palate, it is fresh and pleasant, with fine bubbles. A long, round, delicate finish, with toasty, aniseed notes coming through.

Pairing: It goes perfectly with nougat and dessert dishes. Ideal for adding flavor to cream desserts, fruit cakes, puff pastries, sponge cakes, chocolate and jams, crepes and even ice creams and mousses

Alcohol: 12,0%.
