This Tempranillo is full of ripe fruit, lifted floral characters and then a deliciously meaty savouriness on the nose with notes of wood smoke and liquorice. The palate is plump and lifted, with blackberry fruit, clove and dark chocolate - complex and intense, with beautiful nuances and a long finish.
The vineyards are planted on sandy soils at an altitude of 750 metres above sea level. Gobelet trained Tempranillo vines at a density of 1,600 vines/hectare. The vines average 60-100 years in age and as a result produce small yields of just 1-1.5kgs/vine. Fermented at 28ºC in stainless steel and then aged for 14 months in French and American oak barriques.
Roasted pork or lamb or a tagine of sorts.
