Varieties: 100% Chardonnay.
Vineyards: The Chardonnay grapes come from the La Serra estate, a small plot located on top of the mountain on just 0.8 hectares of land and with a steep slope towards the northeast.
Soil: Varying amounts of gravel and substrates of dirt and rock. Formed in the Paleogene, it contains clay and silt with intercalations of conglomerate and calcareous sandstones from the foothills of the Prades mountains that, in turn, elevate the vineyard. The ground is thin due to the slope and the changing winds sweeps away the soil conti- nuously.
Elevation: 730 metres.
Agriculture: Organic, CCPAE-certified. Exclusive use of organic fertilisers made by the winery itself. Control of the origin of organic matter and cooking temperatures. Ploughing between strains with preservation of the ground-layer vegetation. Biodynamic practices in vineyard applications and work.
Harvest: Hand harvesting into boxes and refrigeration of the whole grape, with a strict selection grape by grape on a double sorting table.
Production: Slight pressing of which only the first fraction is reserved. The grapes ferment at a temperature of 16oC.
Yeast: Work is done to identify and select the grapevine’s indigenous yeasts for inoculation during fermentation.
Aging: Half of the wine ages in a single 500 L amphora for 6 months and the other half is aged for 6 months in a single 500 L French oak barrel.
Production: Maximum of 1,300 bottles, depending on the vintage.
Tasting notes: Very bright golden colour, with aromas of quince, smoky notes, honey and vanilla, good body and high acidity.
Designation of Origin: Costers del Segre.
