  • Pure and intense aromas of dark cherry and blackberry are complemented by violet and clove highlights. On the palate, the wonderful fruit concentration is balanced by fresh acidity, with characterful chalky tannins leading to a long, mineral finish.

The Tempranillo grapes were carefully sorted to select the highest quality fruit. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in 12,000 litre stainless steel tanks at moderate temperatures. Daily pump-overs took place to ensure extraction of flavours, colour and fine tannins. 10% of the wine went through malolactic conversion in new French oak barrels of 300 litres, which resulted in a softer mouthfeel. 20% of the wine was aged for four months in French oak barrels of 300 litres of first, second and third use, while the balance was aged in stainless steel tanks for four months on the fine lees, adding purity of fruit to the blend.

Winery

The grapes come from 300 small, carefully selected parcels, situated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria, in Rioja Alavesa. The average plot size is just 0.3 hectares and the average age of the vineyard is approximately 50 years, but some of the vines are significantly older, producing low yields of concentrated juice. The bush vines are planted in limestone soils, resulting in elegant wines that are fresh, precise, and age-worthy due to the balancing acidity. The vines are cultivated with respect for the environment, using minimal sprays of copper and sulfur when required. The fruit is hand-harvested in 15-kilogram boxes to preserve the quality.
