The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come exclusively from Family Selection vines older than 60 years from La Horra. Soils are clay, sandy and gravels with an altitude between 800-840 meters. After being hand-harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tank of 7,500 L, with two to four days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place. The wine is aged for fifteen months in new oak barrels. It is then aged an additional one year in bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2015 harvest was characterized by a very low yield production. The climatology conditions were good along the cycle, very healthy vintage and especially dry along September. The early harvesting September 21st –October 3rd gave to the wines powerful fruit aromas, balance tannins, intense colour and adequate acidity for aging into barrels.
The 2015 vintage was qualified as EXCELLENT.
This wine is ideally served at room temperature (16ºC- 61ºF) to accompany steak, venison and other hearty fare such as stews and roast, as hard cheeses as well. We suggest decanting.
Recomended consumption time from now until 2030.
