Emiliana Adobe Viognier 2020
Spicy, aromatic and exotically interesting. Pale yellow in colour with a nose that presents fruity aromas recalling apricot and papaya with honey and Honeysuckle and Jasmine notes. The refreshing palate shows this is a wine full of character, with good concentration and balance.
During summer, the Colchagua Valley presents high temperature range, having low temperature at night. The grapes that went into this wine were picked by hand at early-April, when the fruit had reached its optimal degree of ripeness. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks, in the Las Palmeras winery. During this stage, the temperature was carefully managed to remain cool (around 15ºC) without pumpovers and with delicate lees stirring, in order to reach the desired results. Finally, the wine was fined with bentonite and cold-stabilized before bottling to prevent tartaric precipitations in the bottle.
