Wine Description

The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come exclusively from bush vines older than 60 years from La Horra. Soils clay and loam at an elevation 800-840 meters. After being hand-harvested before rains from September 26thtill October 1st and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tanks, with five to six days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation.  An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place. The wine is aged for fifteen months in new oak barrels (50-percent French and 50-percent American oak).  It is then aged an additional two years in bottle before leaving the cellar. 

The 2014 harvest was characterized by a high yield production. The climatology conditions were very good along the cycle, very healthy vintage and especially along September. The early harvesting September 26th-October 3rdgave to the wines powerful fruit aromas, sweet tannins, intense colour and adequate acidity for aging into barrels accompanied by a proper degree of alcohol.
