Made with estate-grown grapes from organic farming, and free of chemical pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and in-organic fertilizers. These practices improve soil structure and enhance the natural cycle of the vines to achieve the highest quality grapes. Mediterranean climate, at 750 m above sea level, along the banks of the river Jucar. Night harvested in October to retain the best balance of acid and sugar. Alcoholic fermentation carried out in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures between 25-27°C. Aged for 6 months in American oak barrels before bottling with gentle filtering to keep all natural aromas and characteristics.
Intense cherry red with violet tinges. Aromas of dark red ripe fruits, hints of strawberry and black raspberry. Smooth toasted notes of licorice and spice. Well rounded tannins and a late finish of smoky, toasted vanilla.
Pairs exceptionally well with grilled meats, heavier fish dishes, sauces with pasta or rice.
