Deep ruby red in colour with good aromatic intensity showing forest fruits such as blackberries, redcurrants and wild fruits. On the palate the red fruit characteristic of Tempranillo dominates along with floral notes. Barel ageing give sa lightly spiced touch and a long, balanced finish.
The organically grown grapes were hand harvested and then held at 12 degrees for 12 hours to avoid oxidation of the must and maintain the bright colour.
The 2019 Garnacha harvest began at the end of September and ran into the beginning of October. There was a lot of temperature variation along with some rainfall in May and June and the overall quantity of grapes was reduced in the vineyards of Rioja. But this lead to the formation of small, healthy bunches of loosely packed grapes with high quality potential.
The alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats with naturally occurring wild yeasts and at a temperature of 24 degrees to preserve the aromas and varietal expression of the Tempranillo grape. The wine was then aged in oak barrels for four months in order to develop power and volume before bottling.
