Garnacha grapes from our Los Almendros estate, from the plot known as “Las Terrazas”. 6 months in French-oak “foudres”.
Bright, lively, red colour with bluish glints. The nose surprises you with its intense aromas in which you can find floral notes, violets and subtle reminders of light toasting. Its freshness wraps around the mouth with silky tannins and good body. The long finish sees a return of the floral notes and red berries.
