Wine Description

Made from a careful selection of grapes of the Tempranillo variety.

The vineyards from which these grapes are sourced are blessed with optimal growing conditions for this variety.

The grape maturity is monitored and the harvest is made once the maximum balance has been achieved between the grape components. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats.

The fermentation is made at a controlled temperature of 25 ºC and with a maceration of around 10 – 12 days, depending on the grape condition. 

Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation has been completed, the wine is stabilised and then bottled.

Tasting Notes

Colour: lovely cherry red with purple hues.

Aromas: intense aromas, outstanding ripe fruit and red berries with hints of liquorice.

Mouth: round entry with sweet tannins, ripe fruit and a final acidity to provide freshness and balance.
