Winemaking: The clusters were hand-harvested and carefully sorted at the
winery. The grapes were destemmed and slightly crushed. The
fermentation took place in small stainless steel open-top tanks (lagares).
The cap of skins were punched down dailly to maximize the varietal
character and complexity. After malolactic, the wine was transferred to
french oak barrels for 18 months, to achieve integration of fruit and oaks.
Tasting Notes: On the nose has red and black fruits, spices and some
smokiness from the oak barrels. In the palate is full bodied, has supple
tannins and great acidity. It is a juicy, elegant and complex wine.
