Name: Lunares Blanco
Type: Sustainable White Wine
Vintage: 2016
Winery: Bodegas Lunares
Region: D.O. Sierras de Málaga, Serranías de Ronda
Variety: Chardonnay and Sauvingnon Blanc
Alcohol: 14%
Elaboration: Both varieties of grape come from the 1,000 metres-high plantation named Ronda La Vieja, on the base of the Acinipo Roman ruins. The altitude of the vineyard and the detailed work on the land permit us to have wines with a very good acidity in these latitudes. The two varieties were harvested together, eliminating the grapes that presented symptoms of too much sun. A special cold maceration during two days was done in the winery, after that, was the time to press, decourbage and wait for the fermentation to begin naturally.  Fermentation was done between 14ºC and 15ºC over a month, and once it was finished, we decided not do malolactic fermentation to boost freshness. This wine was raised on lees for five months, taking care of these lees.
Colour: Beautiful golden yellow with green reflections.
Nose: A high fruity load appears in the nose, prevailing white fruits, such as pears and apples, over a slight remembrance of tropical fruits. A touch of white flowers complements the whole set.
Mouth: Long and unctuous in the mouth, a characteristic of Chardonnay and the time spent on lees. Sauvignon Blanc, at this altitude, has great acidity      
Average Temperature: 9%
Pairing: Salmon, tuna and even some poultry.
Awards/Medals: Best White Wine "Sabor a Málaga" 2015.
