Write a Review

Vintage: 2020

Grape Varietals: 85% Mencia, 10% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Field Blend

Farming: Organic

Powerful yet elegant with red cherry, cranberry, and plum aromas. Earthy aromas, clove, violet flowers, pleasant herbaceous touches and clearly mineral hints. The soil provides a special tannin, tension and minerality that makes it very elegant and delicate. Elegant, precise, deep and complex. Fermentation is carried out in 1,000 liters open container with 25% whole cluster. The grapes are gently stepped on so that a part of the skins remain whole in the fermentation, which is carried out spontaneously with wild yeast. The maceration was carried out for 60 days, in which the work consisted of sinking daily the cap manually, without breaking it. After the bleeding and pressing is done, we let it settle for 7 days. After this, it is put into two 600-liter barrels and left to stand for 1 year.
