EL ALBA

CHARDONNAY

El Alba means Dawn in Spanish. The Chardonnay grapes, planted on very poor, stony soils, are picked at night, avoiding the hot midday sun, to ensure freshness at the start of the fermentation which occurs in a gradual, controlled manner, showcasing the charac- ter of the terroir it comes from.
