Winemaker's comments: Â Fading yellow with light green reflections. The noses expresses exotic fruit aromas of papaya and lemon with a touch of saltiness as well. On the pallet the wine is very elegant, round, keeping a lot of freshness due to a good acidity.
More on vineyard and winemaking:Â Vines areÂ planted at density ofÂ 6250 vines/ha. Harvest by hand, gathering grapes in small crates, with grape sorting.Â Bargylus elegantly combines strength & refinement it has a strong color, the range of aroma is perceivable through the fresh fruit & minerality that translates the very shingly soil. The balance between sweetness, that comes with sunniness and the grapesâ€™ full maturity, and salinity that comes with limestone, allows Bargylus to convey a strong soil identity and an inimitable taste.
