Mariposa Encruzado 2018 White

The grapes were harvested manually for small boxes of 20 kg, with pre-selection in the vineyard. The grapes were again selected on a sorting table, cooled and immediately pressed. The resulting must was transferred to new (1/3) and used French oak barrels, where it completed the fermentation and where it remained for about 6 months, with battonage, to gently stirr the fine lees and blend it with the wine.
