Vinification: The grapes were harvested by hand during the last week of April until the first week of May and carefully transported to the winery. As soon as the grapes were destemmed they were gently crushed and sent to a stainless steel vat for fermentation where selected yeasts were added. During the fermentation process, which reached temperatures of 28-30 C, depending on the characteristics of the grape, the must (juice with grape skins) was macerated with aerated recycling gradually moving the liquid from the bottom to the top of the vat 1.5 times until the fermentation process reached half the alcoholic volume. The alcoholic fermentation was finalized by macerating the wine with the grape skins for one more week to achieve and improved structure and more character. Next the wine was separated from the grape skins which were then pressed to yield a second fraction of wine. After that, the wine was aged in French Oak barrels for 12 months. Previously to the bottling, 20% of a selective tank has been blended to the original wine in order to bring freshness and brightness to the fruit. The wine was then cold stabilized, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Note: Deep and intense, this wine shows a brilliant purple and introduces itself with a fresh and characteristic nose of the grape. Small wild berries, plums, blackberries, dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers. The rising complexity also gives wet earth and stones, graffito, fresh licorice black pepper and smooth spices. The mouth initiates with juicy sensations and all the freshness of the fruit expression. Well surrounded by small and fine tannins helping in increasing density, the texture gets intensity and slowly leads to a smooth and vibrant finish of impressive length made of spices, underbrush and wild berries enhanced by mineral hints, licorice and tobacco.

Best Enjoyed: Within 8 years
