The harvest was carried out in boxes of 10 kg, carrying out a manual selection of bunches and grapes in the field that was completed with a manual selection table in the winery. The grapes were then placed in a 5,000-liter French oak vat, where a cold pre-fermentation maceration (4ºC) was carried out for 4 days. The fermentation lasted 8 days during which daily manual pump-overs were carried out to homogenize and break the cap, and delestages in the middle of the fermentation to eliminate seeds and improve the extraction of polyphenols. During the next 11 days, a post-fermentative maceration was carried out with daily punching to complete a correct extraction and fixation of the polyphenols. The malolactic fermentation took place in 225-liter French oak barrels. Once finished, the wine was aged in these same barrels for the following 18 months.
Cherry red color, with an intense layer and garnet reflections. Great complexity and aromatic intensity where the ripe black and red fruits are accompanied by mineral and spicy notes such as cinnamon or black pepper. As a result of the barrel aging we can find balsamic notes, chocolates or toffee. On the palate it is a long and persistent wine that transmits fresh and velvety sensations where the ripe fruit (cassis, blackberry) stands out again.
