Evolúció is made from a selection of vineyards especially identified to create a well balanced and food complementing wine.
The grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, pressed gently, fermented cold in stainless steel tanks without further aging. The furmint was selected for its quality from several vineyards and assembled with Yellow Muscat to provide the best‐balanced blend from this vintage.
