Grape Variety: Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscatel
Aging: 12 months in second-use French, Hungarian and American oak barrels
Region: Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California, Mexico
Ideal as an aperitif or for seafood and shells reminiscent of Ensenada cream, but it is also versatile thanks to its good acidity towards dishes with more fat, such as a lamb barbecue taquito or fish tacos. Recommended temperature: 10-12°C (50-54°F).
Dry white wine with a greenish straw yellow color. Very fresh with marked aromas of white flowers: jasmine, orange blossom, and fruits: guava, soursop, passion fruit and green apple, as well as citrus notes, honey, and fresh grass. In the mouth it is appreciated as a dry, refreshing white wine with a marked bright natural acidity. Balanced. Invite a second, third and fourth drink. Easy to drink, obvious glou glou wine, and versatile to pair with.
The three grapes come from vineyards located in Valle de Guadalupe (Baja California), with productions per hectare of less than 8 tons. Both Chenin Blanc and Moscatel come from vineyards with granitic soils, very poor and with good drainage; Sauvignon Blanc is produced in a vineyard with silt-sandy soil.
