Development and ageing

This wine is only produced in the best years from a selection of the best grapes from the oldest vineyards, more than 70 years old. Cold maceration is carried out for a few days before fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation takes places a low temperature of less than 26ºC with periodic pumping over. The wine is then transferred to new French oak barrels where it remains for 15 months. Bottled in May 2012 this wine has continued ageing in bottle until being released to the market.

Tasting notes

Beronia IIIaC 2011 shows a bright red-black colour with cherry red rim. Intense on the nose with mineral, balsamic and menthol notes standing out over a chocolate base. On the palate well balanced and fresh with a lot of fruit and cocoa. A long and persistent wine.

Pairing

Should be served between 15º and 16ºC. Perfect with rich dishes and red meats, also cured cheeses. Reccomended consumption until 2020.
