The best wines are obtained by listening to nature. This is the reason for which more than twenty years ago we chose the privileged environment of Fransola, historic estate located in one of the highest areas of the Penedès, to plant one of our most renowned vineyards. Its cold nights and mild days provide an excellent climate for growing vines, giving away the best sauvignon blanc grapes with which we make this elegant and balanced wine.

Winemaker's notes: Intense, complex aroma of exotic fruit (passion fruit and green fig), delicately ennobled by fine notes of toast and vanilla (from the ageing in new French oak). Good balance in the mouth thanks to the wine's acidity, with floral notes that pleasantly linger mid-palate.
