4-bottle (wooden) case.
The 2nd vintage of this wine; 100% Garnacha Tintorera from old vines (70+ years old) from a specific 3.5ha vineyard site close to the winery. Soil is predominantly Franco-clay, and higher altitude, with an exposure suitable for optimum ripening of grapes. Grapes are hand-harvested with maximum vineyard selection.
Traditional red wine production. Alcoholic fermentation, using natural yeast, takes place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks - with regular pumpovers - while malolactic fermentation occurs in barrel. The wine is aged for 6 months in first-passage 500-litre French oak barrels, and 6 months in clay Amphorae. Fining with a gelatin-based agent; bottled unfiltered. Very limited production (1600 bottles). 14.5% alc./vol.
Our tasting note: Deep, inky/ruby colour. Aromas and flavours of ripe, wild raspberry, blueberry and plum with evolving notes of dark chocolate, herbs, and anise. Rich and full, with firm/muscular tannins, balanced acidity, and an intense/elegant finish.
