Grapes: 95% Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha, 2% Viura.
Wine-making: After the selection of bunches in the field, they fermented in stainless steel tanks for 6 days, with slight pumping for a perfect extraction of polyphenols and color, extending the maceration for 12 days. Malolactic fermentation in tank.
Ageing: 14 months in 225 liter barrels: 80% American and 20% French oak.
Tasting Notes: Clear ruby color with bright garnet rim. Ripe red and black fruit with spicy (white pepper) aromas and fresh balsamic notes in a wine where the fruit takes centre stage. Medium-bodied as befits the crianza style but with an extra firmness on this vintage that will carry the wine through its development. A solid red with a slightly chalky finish that puts the accent on terroir before the ageing category.
Pairing: Lamb chops, foie micuit, mushrooms or cured cheeses.
