Winemaking To prepare the Il·lusió the grapes are macerated for about 4 - 6 hours. The fermentation takes place between 14ºC – 16ºC. Before the wine is bottled, it stays in a stainless steel tank for about 4 months with frequent battonage of the lees to afford complexity in the wine.
Description The wine has a bright yellow color with green highlights.The aroma of the Il·lusió is reminiscent of Mediterranean herbs (lavender and thyme), ripe white fruits (pear and white peach) with a touch of citrics. In the mouth it is full bodied and characteristically Mediterranean, the ageing on the lees giving the wine additional volume. The clay soils give a hint of minerality together with the acidity which should give the wine the potential to age and further develop in the bottle for some months to years. This wine captivates through its delicate fruits, harmony and distinctive character.
