WINEMAKER’S NOTES: The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come exclusively from bush vines older than 60 years from La Horra. Soils clay and loam at an elevation 800-840 meters. After being hand-harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tanks, with five to six days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place. The wine is aged for fifteen months in new oak barrels (90-percent French and 10-percent American oak). It is then aged an additional two years in bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2016 harvest was characterized by a good yield production. The climatology conditions with heavy rains during winter and spring, very dry summer gave very healthy berries. The harvesting took place from September 29th –October20th and gave to the wines powerful black fruit aromas, balance tannins, intense colour and low acidity.
The 2016 vintage was qualified as VERY GOOD
