Description

  • Medium-bodied
  • Lightly oaked
  • Roasted nut
  • Black cherry

"It’s attractively fruited and inviting on the nose showing black cherry, violet, thyme and roasted nut characters with a subtle spicy nuance. The palate displays lovely weight and succulent fruit intensity, beautifully supported by plump mouthfeel and silky tannins" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2019

Medium-bodied and deep in colour with well-integrated fine juicy tannins, persistent and soft on the palate with a silky fruit-forward finish.

The vineyard is located at 750-850 metres altitude, 30-35-year-old dry-farmed bush and trellised vines, organic farming methods, nutrient-poor and limestone-rich soil, scarce rainfall.

Harvest starting 15 September, spontaneous wild fermentation with gradual increase in temperature up to 29º C. to obtain good colour and then a gradual decrease to 23 ºC. to preserve the primary aroma of the fruit, racking by gravity, 3-4 months in oak.

Food Pairing: Enjoy this smooth red by itself or with grilled, roasted or fried dishes, barbecued red meats, rice and pasta dishes, cured salted meats (jamón, chorizo) and semi-cured cheeses.
