Winemaker’s notes

Season 2014-2015 had the highest temperatures and least amount of frosts in the last 3 years. It`s main characteristics was the absence of rainfalls during the flowering and harvest period, giving us very healthy grapes to work with. High temperatures got our grapes faster to the optimal ripening, giving to our wines a discreet acidity, structured tannins and higher aromatic intensity.

Winemaking

The grapes were ground immediately after harvesting. They were then subjected to a cold maceration of 3 to 5 days before fermentation. Selected yeasts were used at a fermenting temperature between 26°C and 28°C, taking 8 to 10 days for finishing this process, and followed by a full malolactic fermentation during several months.

Tasting notes

Cherry red and bright color. In the nose, medium aroma intensity and fruity. Notes of blackberry, raspberry, mint, toffe and tobacco leafs. In mouth, it´s a dry elegant and fuirty wine. Medium acidity and velvety tannins. Progressive entrance and a medium to long-lasting finish.
