V de Mas Igneus is made from 63% red and 37% white varieties, cultivated in two different and opposite plots, the warmest and the coolest of the vineyard. As a result, the red grapes were harvested 38 days before the white ones.
10% of the must was fermented in oak barrels of 400L to increase the complexity of the nose and balance the vivacity of the mouth.
After alcoholic fermentation, it undergoes a rearing with its lees, the finest, in the same containers. The benefit of this method of ageing is to naturally protect the wines from oxidation as well as to bring density in the mouth.

The Somelier's Note
In this dry, clear and brilliant white wine we find a floral freshness, rose petal, white carnation that predominates on a fruity shade of candied citrus, pears and apricots.
On the palate its citrus tendency confers a balanced minerality.
