Tasting Notes

Clean, high intensity aromas of red fruit such as raspberry, strawberry, red cherry, also black pepper and earthy on the nose with soft tannins and medium body. Red fruits flavours, mineral hints and a long finish.

Vinification: Although budding started a little later than the previous year, in April the process evolved well and the flowering actually finished somewhat earlier than normal. The summer was extremely hot and dry, the June rains playing a crucial part in preventing the vines from suffering from the heatwave. In August the heat was more bearable and the decisive month of September arrived with a lot of light and lower temperatures. This weather pattern allowed for the correct evolution of the vegetative stage of the vine, with no pest or disease problems, good budding and perfect fruit set. The grapes were harvested in an impeccable state of health with optimum ripeness, making the 2015 harvest quite extraordinary.
