Winemaking Process

Traditional, fermented at a controlled temperature of 28ºC and macerated for 14 days. Ageing in casks a maximum of four years old (30% American oak and 70% French oak), for 12 months. Completed in bottle during a minimum of 20 months before its market release.

 


Tasting Note

It is a wine with a cherry-ruby colour, with a brick red edge, very luminous. It has a complex nose, with balsamic, vanilla and spicy notes, against a bottom of black fruit jams (cranberries, blackberries). It is well-structurated in the mouth-feel, with fine well-integrated woods and a spicy retronasal olfaction.

 


Pairing

White and red meants, beef, lamb or pork roasts, game, poultry, stews, rice dishes, stewed pulses, mushrooms, cured and blue cheeses.
