SIÓ Blanc 2019 Organic Wine
White wine well suited for laying down made from our old vines of Prensal and barrel aged Viognier. We look here for length and complexity. The Prensal variety stands out for its finesse in the nose when the vines are young, but only the older vines will bring the structure and length required by the wine to age well. Besides the age of the vines, the vineyard management is also fundamental. It is important to limit the production, to make a strict control over the maturity of the fruit to avoid overripeness and to keep the right acidity that will allow a long aging in the barrel and in the bottles.
