TASTING NOTE

Appearance

Bright and clean, high layer and intense color. Red cherry color with hues of cardinal.

Nose

Ripe like compote and immediately struck by well assembled flavours of blackberries and plums with aromas of wood, coffee, pepper and cocoa. Further tasting notes of rich balsamic and licorice.

Palate

The palate is very powerful and structured, long haul, with polished tannins. In the aftertaste you can see very ripe fruit notes that give it smoothness.

ELABORATION

The harvest was carried out from 10 th to 13 th October 2014 manually in boxes of 10 kg at dawn. After a few minutes, a 3rd selection was made cluster by cluster, followed by a 4th grape-by-grape selection at the selection table, after which it was destemmed and crushed for its subsequent rest in stainless steel vats of less than 5000 liters. The alcoholic fermentation was controlled at 25º, punching and pumping up every 4 hours for 15 days.

After this first fermentation, manual deburring was carried out, which ended with very gentle bleeding and pressing, and the wine again in the tank began malolactic fermentation at a temperature of 21º.

Finally, the wine was placed in French oak barrels where it rested for 14 months after which it was bottled and kept in a bottle rack for at least 36 months before being released to the market.
