El MIRACLE 120 ANIVERSARIO is a wine created to commemorate 120 years of savoir faire and to celebrate the miracle of turning grapes into wine. A wine with a history revealing new flavours to us.
Plentiful sunshine, the Mediterranean breeze and a mean annual temperature of 15ºC make the Valencia Appellation of Origin region a paradise for producing wines with hight fruit content. Its brown limey soil has made for excellent acclimatisation of fine wine varieties such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
During the second fortnight of August both varieties are harvested at night so as to avoid the high temperatures of the day. The grapes are refrigerated with dry ice during their transport to the winery so as to keep all their fruity treasure intact. Then they are gently crushed and special low temprature maceration undertaken to drw aout the maximum aromas. The free-run juice is extracted trough gravity and fermentation is carried out at a controlled tempreature and using selected yeasts, Lastly the two varieties are blended and stored for 4 4 months befour beging sold.
Recommended with calamari and squid or mollusc like mussels.
Straw yellow colour with greenish iridescences. Its bouquet combines critic aromas (lime) and tropical aromas (pineapple, peach) with floral aromas such as orange blossom. On the palate it is ample, fresh and at the same time with a sweet richness and perfectly balanced asidity/alcohol.
