The grapes, which were previously de-stemmed, went through a pre-fermenting maceration at low temperatures during 12 hours. Fermentation took place in lagares with successive pressings by robot and in stainless steel vats during 10 days, not exceeding 27ºC. The aging and malolactic fermentation occurred during 18 months in used French oak barriques.
Deep colour of violet tonality, good concentration in the nose. Rich perfume of mature black fruit, spices and floral notes. Very fine and elegant on the palate with soft tannins combined with good acidity and a long aftertaste.
