San Marzano EDDA Bianco Salento IGP 2020
San Marzano EDDA Bianco Salento is a feminine and sensual soul. Straw yellow colour with gold reflections. A complex white that exudes mellow floral notes, peach and delicate hints of vanilla in its bouquet. The fresh palate is round with a beautiful balance, elegant style, ripe peach flavours and a touch of minerality on the finish.
Fun Fact: "Edda" means "she" in Salento dialect.
60% Chardonnay, 20% Moscatello Selvatico and 20% Fiano. The fruit for this wine comes from a vineyard in San Marzano, Salento, Puglia. The vineyard sits approximately 100 metres above sea level and benefits from great diurnal temperature variations. The warmer temperatures during the day and cooler nights encourage the grapes to have a long maturation period, with the heat of the day promoting sugar accumulation, while the cooler nights preserve the acidity levels. The vines go through Guyot training and grow in soils with a thin layer but have fine texture.
After gentle destemming, the grapes go through a cool maceration for several hours. Following this is a gentle pressing of the marc and cold settling. Alcohol fermentation in French oak barrels. Ageing in the same French oak barrels for 4 months on the yeasts with a weekly batonnage.
