Winery: Morosanto
Region: D.O. Sierras de Málaga. Serranía deRonda
Variety: Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah
Alcohol: 14.5%
Elaboration: This highly-flavoured wine is a blend of grapes: Petit Verdot (60%), Cabernet Saivignon (30%) and Shiraz (10%). This vintage was harvested in October, giving the grapes every chance to ripen perfectly. Following the alcoholic fermentation, we allowed a long post-fermentation in order to maximise the extraction. Thus the ageing process in barrels was balanced by a powerful malolactic fermentation stage. After twelve months in French oak barrels, the wine spent a year in the bottle, enabling us to introduce it to the market at its moment of perfection.
Colour: Red cherry, with hints of violet. It has a large, genrous “teardrop”.
Nose: The wine itself brings suggestions of herbs and spices (liquorice, cloves), and the ageing process has introduced a soupçon of oak and balsamic, toasted aromas.
Mouth: This is a well-balanced, full-bodied wine.
