The Tempranillo grapes for this wine were collected in October. Following harvest the grapes underwent cold maceration for a few days so as to extract aromas and colour however not tannins. Alcoholic fermentation took place a low temperatures below 26ºC and with periodic pumping over. The wine was then transferred to mixed oak barrels with American staves and French tops where it was aged for 9 months. The wine was bottled in January 2018 and remained in bottle for a minimum of 6 months before release to the market.
This 100% Tempranillo shows a deep cherry colour. On the nose aromas of cherry with hint of spice including white pepper and notes of tobacco. Also, intense almond essence adding a pleasant touch of freshness. On the palate the wine is fresh and very fruit forward, particularly stone fruit, with cherry evident again as well as sweet notes – of cinnamon stick in particular.
This is a young wine which matches perfectly with light red meats and pasta dishes.Serve between 15º and 17ºC. Ideal consumption from now until 2023.
