Mature vines are grown in premium high altitude (300-500m) vineyards on gravel and sandy soils in the Rioja Alta sub-region, near Logroño. Hand-harvested when perfectly ripe in September. Top-class grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks with the temperature controlled at 28-30°C. Following fermentation, the wine is aged for 6 months in American oak barrels. This results in the perfect balance of fruit and light vanilla spice flavours.
Bright ruby red wine. Ripe wild berry and cherry fruit aromas with sweet herbs and hints of spice. Beautifully smooth and silky, fresh and fruity, with rounded tannins. A touch of vanilla leads to a lingering finish. Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
A great accompaniment to grilled vegetables, red meats and poultry, rice and pasta dishes.
