Cherry-red colour. Clean, bright and extremely well presented.
Predominant red berries as raspberries and cherries aromas with elegant notes of black liquorice and nutmeg all well integrated with the oak.
The palate is powerful and long showing a freshness, nice structure, balanced acidity and tannins. Lingering to the finish.
The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come from 15-25 year-old vines. After being hand harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tanks, with five to six days cold skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place. The wine is aged for four months in oak barrel (50-percent American and 50-percent French oak). It has an additional four months of ageing in the bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2018 came with a generous rain in winter and spring followed by dry summer with cold nights in August. Harvesting happens from 1st of October to 12th of October giving good yield and ripeness. Wines will be lighter fresh with great weight of fruit component and balanced tannins.
The 2018 vintage was qualified as VERY GOOD
