"A spicy and earthy red with currants and dried fruit. Full body, round tannins and a fresh finish. Seems to have a little barnyard character but the ripe fruit comes through. Drink now."

Product Description:

"The El Esteco range of wines is oriented to have a personality of great finesse and complexity. Concentrated bunches of small grains are manually harvested early in the morning and put into small bins of 18 kg. Pre-fermentative maceration at 5°C in stainless steel tanks and gentle treatments are carried out during alcoholic fermentation. Utilization of both native and selected yeasts for the fermentation process. Post fermentative maceration total 25 days. Natural malolactic fermentation is carried in both american and french barrels of first, second and third use. Finalizing this process the wine is carried out in both American and French barrels. A careful selection of barrels is made, looking for light toasted oak in order to accentuate the freshness of the fruit. The wine is bottled unfiltered, and kept at the winery during 6 months." -Winery
