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.
The wine 12 Lunas Blanco is brigh yellow with some golden tinges.
Lively aromas of ripe white fruit and white flowers, typical of a blend of Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer, with notes of passion fruit and citrus.
Gently unctuous and smooth, this wine of bodega El Grillo y La Luna has an excellent acidity and a medium-long finish with notes of tropical fruit and flowers.
