This wine was made entirely from grapes of a special vineyard.
The soil profile is a mix a gravels of different sizes, and has only 15% organic matter making it an ideal area for the production of high quality red wines.
Absence of rain during the harvest season makes this place a paradise for vines and good quality grape.
From the pruning to the harvest, every single work done in the vineyard has gone under the careful supervision of the viticulture and winemaking team in order to produce the best quality of fruit possible. The fruit was handpicked and them placed in 20kg cases so there is no breakage of the grapes, the picking started first week of June, at its optimal phenolic maturity, then underwent through a very careful selection of bunches and after they were destalked a selection of grapes also was done. The fermentation was in small stainless steeltanks at a controlled temperature. The maceration took place after the alcoholic fermentation.
The wine was aged for 10 months in French oak
PRODUCER'S TASTING NOTES
Deep red, almost black with hints of violet. Elegant and
complex on the nose, plenty of spices, black fruit and
chocolate. Nice and smooth tannins in the palate with a
perfect integration between the oak and the fruit. Long
and elegant finish.
