Very limited production of 5000 bottles.Highly-selected, top quality Mencia grapes from vineyards of slate-schist, decomposed volcanic soils ideal for water retention especially when there is drought. Both Souson and Caino are added for their colour and fragrance thanks to their strong pigmentation. Vines are tightly-controlled through green pruning and thinning of bunches in order to obtain low yields and the best quality grapes with concentrated colour, aromas and taste.Grapes are all harvested by hand from the estate and are fermented using indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats undergoing micro-oxyenation to soften the tannins.
High intensity, deep garnet colour with a strong violet hue. Aromas of red fruits, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, cocoa, coffee and floral notes of jasmine. Rounded and silky body with refreshing acidity, powerful dense red berry and ripe cherry fruits with mineral flavours, with a slightly dark bitter chocolate but fruity long aftertaste.
Decanter Spanish Atlantic Reds Awards 2017 - 90 points Highly recommended
