Tasting notes

Deep red colour. Concentrated, intense and complex aroma dominated by ripe black fruits, blackberries, cassis, and gooseberry, also showing floral aromas of violet and exotic wood. Aromas of spices result from elevage in the barrels. All these aspects contribute to excelente aromatic complexity that will increase with time. Well balanced acidity with firm and ripe tannins. These characteristics make it a full bodied and powerful wine with a long, persistent finish.

Winemaking

Upon arrival at the winery the grapes originating from 100 year old vines are carefully selected and de-stemmed. Pre-fermentative maceration at low temperature with robotized treading in stainless steel “lagares” (troughs) takes place, following fermentation at controlled temperature (between 25ºC and 28ºC) in stainless steel tanks. Pumping over and “delestage” processes are then started in order to obtain the greatest extraction possible followed by a long post-fermentative maceration.

Ageing

In 225 and 300 litres French oak barrels for 18 months, 70% ages in new oak barrels and 30% in second and third year barrels.

"Powerful and relatively fresh, this makes its way with structure, focus and precision. The fine mid-palate finesse gives it a sophisticated feel"
