Destemmed and lightly crushed, the grapes are then fermented at a very low temperature (12ºC) in order to reflect the natural freshness and fruitiness of the indigenous Viura and Malvasía varieties. Fermentation is then stopped to maintain the natural sugars (an average of 28 grams per litre) and give it its semi-sweet personality, an homage to the wines of Mediterranean Europe.
Golden with pale yellow hues, Diamante displays a complex bouquet of ripe fruits and flowers underpinned by aromas of sweet must. Unctuous, elegant and easy to drink, it has a sweet attack and a nice, slightly acid finish that adds to its persistence.
