Wine Description

The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come from La Horra and from vines average age 40 years. Soils are clay, loam and sandy at 800-840 meters of altitude.   After being hand-harvested 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 twelve months in two-plus year-old barrels (50-percent American and 50-percent French oak).  It is then aged an additional one year in bottle before leaving the cellar. 

The 2015 vintage was qualified as EXCELLENT

Tasting Notes

Appearance:Has an intense robe with cherry-red colour and blue highlights. Clean, bright and extremely well presented.

Nose: Very nice complexity in the nose aromas.  The black fruits dominate over the liquorice and species as cinnamon and pepper.  It is enhanced by sweet touches of balsamic notes, cacao and toffee.

Taste:The taste has an excellent silky structure, well balanced and full-flavoured, with sweet and round tannins married to light acidity, giving a fresh, harmonic tone to the palate. Long and elegant finish.
