Baltea – Information document

Vineyard:
Clean silty soil of medium mixture with south exposure;
altitude: 295 meters S.L.
Density of planting:
5000 plants/hectare.
Grape Varieties:
Chardonnay 100%

Period of harvest:
The hand harvest is done around 10th of September, in
the early hours of a single day; this is crucial to be sure to preserve the
aromas and flavors of the grapes.
Vinfication:
The first selection of the grapes is made directly in the
vineyard; follows another strict selection just before the destemming
process; after a delicate pressing, the must is poured for two thirds in
small stainless steel vats at controlled temperature, and the last third is
left 2/4 Months fermenting in French barriques. Then it follows the blend
of the two parts, so that a perfect balance between fruit flavor, acidity and
aromatic complexity is reached.
Bottling is in April/May.
Alcohol:
12,5/13,5 %
Tasting notes:
Deep flavor of exotic fruits with scents of dried fruits.
On the palate a nice feeling of freshness and minerality well integrated in
a mantle of mature fruits. Surprising the pleasant lightness, showing a
delicate but fresh and intense body of an elegant, charming and fine wine.
