"The Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes for this wine were sourced from the winery’s own vineyards and a select group of growers around Haro who have long term exclusive contracts with the winery. The vineyards are on average 20 years old." - Importer
"Fermented in small stainless steel vats. After destemming and gentle pressing, the juice gets 6 days of maceration on the skins before fermenting for approximately 10 days at a maximum temperature of 28 ̊C. Aging 14 months in a combination of American and French oak barrels, then a minimum of 6 months aging in a bottle." - Importer
"Cherry red color with brilliant purple rim. Aromas of mature red fruit with a core of spice and delicate liquorice hints. The wine is complex, well structured, fresh and fruity.
Food Match Extremely versatile. A perfect match for ‘Mediterranean cuisine’ such as fried fish or vegetable dishes, rice, pasta, pulses, red and white meats and even cheeses." - Importer
