Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo and Garnacha.
Ageing: Aged for 12 months in oak barrels. Aged for 12 months in bottle.
Harvest: Carried out in mid-October and it is entirely manual with a subsequent selection of clusters.
Vineyard: Organic vineyards with a low yield grown around the winery on fresh calcareous clay soils. Located on the northern border covered by the mountain ranges of Urbasa and Andia, an area that favours red varieties. The vines have never been treated with synthetic chemical products.
Winemaking: Fermentation at 26º, 18 day maceration, pumped over twice a day.
Alcohol Content: 14,5% Vol
Visual: Shades of deep purple and blood, very clean, high intensity and brightness.
Nose: Ripe fruit, compote of pears and sweet apples and quince. Advancing cocoas, dried leaves and bark, some guessing hides in the background.
Palate: Tasty gile, with well-composed tannin. The evolution is favourable because of the perfect harmony between the alcohol and the sourness. The ending is well-resolved, standing out the sensation of fresh fleshiness.
