Fatum white is composed of 50% Airen, an autochthonous variety of La Mancha blended with 15% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Macabeo. These vines are farmed in a traditional/sustainable manner with practically no chemical input. The wine is elaborated using the best grapes, carefully chosen for balance and acidity. Cold maceration as whole grapes lasted for 12 hours to extract aromas, followed by pressing and fermentation which took place at 16°C in stainless steel tanks.

Vinous 88 (fermented and aged for four months in stainless steel tanks) Pale gold. Aromas and flavors of ripe pear, pineapple and honey, along with a gingery background note. A spine of juicy acidity adds lift and focus and drives the lively, nicely persistent finish, which leaves behind a note of bitter pear skin.
