Vinification Method

Classic fermentation method with destemming and pre fermentative skin contact followed of the application of dry yeasts. Fermentation up to 30º C in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20º C during the last 1/3. During the whole fermentative process, pumping over 2 times per day, using each time half of the volume contained in the vat. After the alcoholic fermentation, the cap is plunged for 30 days, and during that period, extraction of the gentle tannins is conducted, along with the malolactic fermentation and the natural stabilization of the wine.

Ageing

The wine is aged in French of Allier oak barrels of 225 Lt for 3 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 3 months after bottling.

Tasting Notes

This low yielding vine has produced a wine of intense colour, aroma and flavour. Full bodied, aromas of forest fruits and prune are followed by subtle oak-spice notes on a well balanced palate. The power has been harnessed into a deliciously smooth whole, but the concentration shows in an extremely long finish.

How to Serve

Can be drunk on its own but will accompany full flavoured dishes for example roasts, game and cheese. Excellent with food or by itself. Will accompany, for example, roasts, barbecue, pasta, vegetarian and cheese dishes. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 16-18ºC.
