GRAPE COMPOSITION:
Garnacha 70% Tempranillo 30%
 
WINEMAKING:
Grapes selected from our vineyards of over 40 years old with yields of less than 5.500 kg/ha, in very balanced zones, with very windy land of low fertility. The grapes are harvested at the optimal moment of phenolic ripeness for each variety.
During vinification the grapes are macerated before fermentation begins at 6-10ºC for approximately 4 to 5 days, to start to extract all the color and aromas from the grapes. Fermentation is temperature controlled not exceeding 26 ºC  where over-pumping and delestages take place on a daily basis providing more structure to the palate.
 
TASTING NOTES:
Spice box, violets, incense, and black cherry aromas set the stage for a ripe, round, easy-going red with good balance and length. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
