  • Vinification: The grapes are hand-picked by local farmers and their families rather
    earlier in the season looking for a fresher style; the winemaking process is simple and with low intervention. Finally, the blending process of components is carefully made to find our desired wine. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged with selected neutral French oak for almost 6 months. Low filtration is used trying to maintain its tannins and structure. The last stage is a 4-month bottle-aging period. 
  • Tasting Note: Intense aromas of fresh strawberries and tart cherries, with notes of rose petals and wild herbs. The well-integrated oak adds elegance and complexity – lightly toasted hazelnut and vanilla notes and very gentle, rounded tannins.
  • Scores: 90pts, James Suckling
