Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2020

Description

  • American oak
  • Dark berry
  • Vanilla
  • Supple mouthfeel

"Made from Garnacha and Tempranillo, offering sweet aromas of dark berry and vanilla with cured meat, clove and cedar nuances. It's plump and succulent on the palate, displaying beautifully supple mouthfeel, making it delectable and fabulously drinkable. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2020

Very Clean and bright; ruby red colour with crimson hues. Medium intensity, its complex aromas are a fine blend of spicy and ripe fruit scents. Smooth and full flavoured in harmony with the tannins afforded by the oak. The taste lingers on for a long time.

This wine underwent traditional wine making, fermented at 28º C followed by a 15 day maceration with skin contact. After the malolactic fermentation both varieties are blended. A vine age of 30 years for Garnacha and 20 years for Tempranillo. This has aged for 6 months in American oak barrels. Additional ageing in bottle before release.
