VINIFICATION

Fermentation always starts naturally and spontaneously. The grapes will always ferment in wooden vats with indigenous yeasts and no temperature control. Maceration times can vary, up to two or three weeks. The total time that this wine spends in oak is 24 months, of which 18 are spent in new French-oak casks and the rest in oak vats. After ageing there is light fining of the wine using fresh egg whites.

TASTING

The dense legs that this wine reveals are a sign of its enormous elegance. The purple-coloured hues around the rim reflect its youth.

On the nose you find black fruit aromas at the peak of ripeness, spicy black pepper aromas and woodland herbs. Balsamic herb nuances appear with rosemary and some smoky notes from the ageing in top class oak casks, creating a harmony and balance which cannot be matched.

In the mouth we can find the juicy, elegant tannins with a nice sharp acidity to balance the palate. Hints of liquorice and the pepper return. A very persistent, elegant, enjoyable and approachable wine.

Food pairing
You can pair this wine with red meat left to hang for a good time, game or failing that, enjoy it on its own. We can also recommend it to accompany grilled white fish.
