Wine Description

Good balance between alcohol content and acidity. Fruit flavors of blueberries and blackberries with a minerality that expresses the red clay soils. There is great importance not only of cold maceration (about 5 days) but also the maceration during and after fermentation (about 20 days). Fermentation temperature around 86°F.

Malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels of medium toast. This wine is aged in barrels of fine-grained French oak barrels for 10 to 15 months with frequent racking.

Tasting Notes

Expressive, deep ruby colour  and sweet perfume of white chocolate with a special mineral nuance.

Medium bodied with supple tannin as well as abundant fruit.
