Aromatic intensity with forest fruits such as blackberries and wild cranberries intermingled with black liquorice, vanilla and nutmeg from time spent in oak. The perfect balance of tannin and acidity.
From selected vineyards in Rioja Alavesa.
Harvest 2016 was very unusual: a very late harvest date, characterized by good weather and high temperatures, which provided excellent conditions for tasty, healthy and very clean fruit of good quality, colour and structure.
Grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days with temperatures between 26-28°C. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is placed in American and French oak barrels for 13-14 months.
