Deep ruby red. Very intense and complex nose with notes developed during its ageing in barrels (coffee, and sweet spice), as well as aromas of candied fruits and nuts. The palate is very structured, full bodied, with well integrated sweet tannins. This is an excellent wine with character and personality, complex nose, long finish, persistent aftertaste and a high potential for bottle ageing.

Deep ruby red. Very intense and complex nose with notes

developed during its ageing in barrels (coffee, and sweet

spice), as well as aromas of candied fruits and nuts. The palate

is very structured, full bodied, with well integrated sweet

tannins. This is an excellent wine with character and

personality, complex nose, long finish, persistent aftertaste

and a high potential for bottle ageing. An elegant wine that

highlights the hallmarks of its origin in the Rioja Alavesa.

Vineyard

Carefully selected vineyards in the Alavesa sub-region of

Rioja.

Winemaking

Made with high quality grapes harvested by hand from our

better plots in Rioja Alavesa. The fermentation takes place in

stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures with a

frequent dropping of the juice over the skins in order to

maximise extraction. Malolactic Fermentation is carried out

in French and American oak barrels, and then, the wine is

manually racked to stabilise and get rid of deposits. After the

cask ageing for 2 years, the wine is clarified with white of egg

to achieve the silkiness and shiny final colour. Ageing in

bottle 36 months.

Vintages

The 2012 harvest has been of low yield in the DOC Rioja due to drought that has characterized

this vintage. The yield of the vineyard was lower especially in dry land areas and has affected all

varieties. However this lack of rain has meant that the grapes arrived at the winery in excellent

health and were extremely aromatic and fruity.
