Wine Details

Defesa Red 2021 6x75cl

  • 75cl bottle

Intense berry and red plum aromas, with some notes of fresh woods. On the palate the wine is rich and intense, with a vibrant texture. A long and balanced finish.


From a combination of vineyards, with average age of 12-years, planted on granitic and schist soils.


The 2021 agricultural year was a rainy year. During the vegetative rest period (autumn /winter) precipitation values were higher than the average of the last 22 years, with temperatures remaining mild. At the beginning of the vegetative cycle in spring, practically all the soils had their water reserves completely reestablished. The budburst occurred earlier, and the higher temperatures observed during the spring accelerated the vegetative development until flowering. In summer, milder temperatures contributed to a regular development of the vegetative cycle, allowing maturation to take place in a regular and balanced manner.


Each variety is harvested separately, destemmed, crushed, and undergoes temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation (22-25°C) in stainless steel tanks.
