Blending of 65% Tempranillo, 17% Merlot, 13%Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah.
The vines are supported by vase and trellis, in a clay-calcareous and franc-clay soil. Hand harvested and cooled in cold-storage rooms before going through the selection table. Fermentation takes place at a temperature of 22-24°C. There is a 10-day skin soaking. A nine-month ageing in French oak barrels followed the wine's secondary fermentation (20% in barrels, 80% in stainless steel tanks). Bottled in January 2008, with soft filtering, being clarified with egg white. 14'3% alcohol by vol and 3.53 ph.
I have been trying a lot of Spanish wines lately. I didn't care for this one. I generally like the earthiness of Old World wines, but this one seemed to taste more like dirt than earth.
Smooth & Supple
Outstanding blend. Received the bottle as a gift and was surprised by how good it is, especially with dark chocolate.
