The Leyda Valley is an area of clay soils which lend the wines a gently mineral character. Its steep hills provide varying levels of exposure to the sun, resulting in different degrees of ripeness. The cooling coastal influence ensures a solw ripening process, leading to grapes with great aromatic potential.

This is a pale yellow wine. Its bouquet is elegant and expressive, dominated by vegetal and citrus notes. On the palate the wine is fresh and unctuous with notes of green chilli pepper and grapefruit and a marked mineral character.
