THE HARVEST

Grapes come from vineyards in Toledo of an average age of 40 years, they express the terroir thanks to their adaptation to the soil over a long period. The soils are calcareous-clay and the Tempranillo grapes usually mature first, grapes picked by hand.

VINIFICATION

100% Old Vine Tempranillo. The grapes are received and inspected upon arrival. Afterwards, they are de-stemmed and crushed. The fermentation and maceration occurrs in stainless steel deposits over 10 days at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. The maceration contributes to an excellent extraction of colour and complexity, while accentuating the characteristics of old vine Tempranillo.

THE AGEING

Following fermentation, the wine was aged in 80 percent American and 20 percent French oak for six months, in medium-high humidity and temperatures between 13-16º C. The barrel-ageing was followed by another three months minimum in the bottle.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Intense, brilliant and clean ruby colour.
Nose: Intense fruit aromas characteristic of the variety, with excellent notes of toasted oak originating from new barrels.
Palate: Round, ample and smooth, with ripe fruit (blackberry and cherry) with a touch of vanilla, coconut, mint and laurel. A wine where the wood shows nicely, but the fruit is predominant.
Food matches: Any roast meat, game meats, legumes, and strong cheeses.
