Falernia Pedro Ximenez Riserva 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes have been hand picked into small bins and immediately pressed. The juice has been clarified by natural sedimentations and fermented in stainless steel tanks at 14-16 C with selected yeasts. At the end of the fermintation the wine has been racked and aged in stainless steel tanks at low temperature. No malolactic fermentation. Cool tartaric stabilization at -4 C before bottling.

Region: Chile » Coquimbo » Elqui Valley

The company was founded in 1998 after Aldo Olivier Gramola realised the potential for producing superb wines in this seem-arid valley. Aldo settled with his family in the Elqui Valley in 1951 and has been producing grapes and wine there since 1975. The Falernia project was born after he met Giorgio Flessati, an enologist working in the Trentino region of northern Italy. This is an innovative venture given that Viña Falernia is Chile’s most northerly wine estate, a considerable distance from the country’s main wine-growing areas. The driving force has been a passion for the wine and the challenge of transforming a tract of desert into a green vineyard with enormous potential for producing premium wines, availing ourselves of the latest technology, the support of agronomist from Chile universities and of world renowned enologists.

Albarino like with tart lime zest, lemon zest nose. Moderate plus acidity light body and medium intensity, dry with moderate plus length, low alcohol. Great citrusy notes, would be great with food, very refreshing.
