Description

"It is attractively fruited and fragrant on the nose showing black/blueberry, roasted beet, olive and hazelnut aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is plump and smooth. The wine offers lovey depth and intensity, beautifully complemented by delightful fruit richness and roundness. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2018

A vibrant and juicy, unoaked red wine, showing great purity and the typical of high-altitude Tempranillo, with expressive and well-defined aromas of red berries, rosemary and a touch of liquorice. Bright ruby red colour. 

Produced from our own, organically farmed vineyards in Uclés (Castile, Spain). Managed as an integrated ecosystem and studded with centenary oak trees. The continental climate with sunny days and cool nights allows us to achieve intense fruit and excellent varietal definition, while retaining remarkable freshness. Grapes are picked at night or in the early morning hours and shipped quickly to our state-of-the-art winery for destalking, light crushing and fermentation under controlled temperature in stainless steel. Maceration lasts for 8-10 days to achieve a perfectly balanced style without excessive extraction. No oak is used for a pure expression of high-altitude Tempranillo.

The Mesta was a powerful association of shepherds in Medieval Castile, controlling the routes for herding sheep across the country. Our vineyards are nestled deep in the land of the Mesta, and are still passed over by flocks on their annual migration, an authentic reminder of ancient rights and a cultural cue for continuing co-existence with nature. Trough organic viticulture and respectful winemaking, we produce wines of great purity, reflecting the unique personality of our land.

Food Pairing: Very versatile, medium-bodied food wine, excellent with tapas, grilled meat and pasta.
