They wanted a white with acidity, and they found it in this obscure variety, which they took from a handful of their old vines and regrafted onto 3,000 plants in the Planetes vineyard. It's 13% alcohol and has 6.3 grams of acidity, always a refreshing and vibrant white with high minerality, notes of pollen, beeswax, fennel, Mediterranean herbs and something earthy. The grape is reductive, and they started using amphorae, but it didn't go well, so they moved to used barriques. It's serious, balanced and really fresh. - Luis Gutiérrez collapse
