Product Description
Details

Produced by El Grillo y la Luna, 12 Lunas Blanco is a blend of Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer made from vineyards located in the DO Somontano.

Harvested by hand, each variety was separately vinified. Once in the cellar, the grapes were gently crushed and pressed for 48 hours to eliminate the gross lees. Then this Spanish white wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature for about 15 days. After that, it was blended and aged for 4 months in the tanks.

Before bottling, 12 Lunas Blanco 2019 was clarified by gravity.

This white wine from Somontano is excellent as an aperitif.
