Elaboration: In this wine, the winery is trying to get an important presence of fruit and great freshness, using the wood only as an accompaniment. Grapes come from the 1,000-metres high plantation named Ronda la Vieja, on the base of the Acinipo Roman ruins and the 600-metres high plantation named Huerto de la Condesa. A first selection is made on the land and a second one at the sorting table. Once the wine is in the vat, a cold maceration within 5 days is done until alcoholic fermentation begins, naturally controlled between 21-23ºC. Malolactic fermentation is spontaneously done in the vats, finishing in barrels with a work of lees. This wine has had a 6 months ageing in 500-litre French oak barrels.
Colour: Vivid lively violets and blue and red shades
Nose: Berry fruits and red flowers go with a delicate toasted beginning
Mouth: Mild tannins and slight remembrance of blue flowers. Great acidity complements the fresh and fruity way
Climatology: The 2014 grape harvest was warmer and dryer than the one in 2013, what made us monitor closely the evolution of the grapes in the vines, holding on to get a great maturation of the tannin, without losing freshness nor an excessive level of alcohol in the wine. Syrah was harvested the second week of September, and Garnacha and Tintilla the third week.
Average Temperature: 14C
