Tempranillo 70%, garnacha 20%, mazuelo and graciano 10%
Tertiary era chalky-clay terraces.
Fermentation with indigenous yeasts in oak vats. Aged for 24 months in casks made in our cooperage from selected oak. Prior to bottling the wine is finned with fresh egg white. Once bottled it is left to undergo a rounding process for twelve months in our cellar, as a minimum.
Here we find a wine with medium-high depth of colour, black-cherry red with garnet hues. Dense legs which give us a wrapping sequence in the glass.
First, red-fruit notes such as blackberries appear, with reminders of fennel, scrubby heathland, all nicely balanced by the smoked aromas from the time spent in medium-toasted wood. Underlying hints of vanilla pod coming through with coffee notes.
Full mouth-feel with slightly mentholated nuances and white chocolate. The vanilla reappears and those red-berry fruit aromas we found on the nose persist, with an elegant acidity which makes the aftertaste long.
This wine can be paired with veal, Iberian pork charcuterie and some types of casseroles (stew).
