Sommos Roble Blanco
SOMMOS ROBLE BLANCO is an elegant, delicate wine that showcases the fortes of Chardonnay as it is grown in Somontano.
Berries grown in parcels H1, H2 and H3 of the Torresalas vineyards. Their N+45° orientation slows ripening to obtain a fresher Chardonnay profile. High-trellised vines following the unilateral “cordon de royat” system. Drip irrigation. Plant density of 4,115 vines/ha with a production of 7,300 kg/ha. Soils with medium-high production levels are controlled by natural ground cover.
Harvest during the third week of August. Mechanical night harvest.
Four hours of maceration in the press is followed by fermentation with selected yeasts at a temperature between 14°C and 16°C. After fermentation, the wine is racked into barrels made of French oak.
Lees ageing and stirring for four months.
Colour: Pale lemon with greenish reflections and a pale rim.
Nose: Complex and very expressive on the nose, tropical fruit aromas such as pineapple are followed by sweeter honeyed notes, leading to aromas acquired by ageing that recall dried fruits like toasted almonds and hazelnuts.
Palate: A very lush, round wine that fills the palate with fruit on a light background of toasted flavours originating from the barrel as well as buttery and pastry notes.
Serving Temperature: 10º to 12ºC.
