Production

Made exclusively from low-yielding, old vine Bobal fruit grown in the area known as ‘Medio Dia’ - where the soil is chalk/clay with little organic content. This, together with long hours of sunshine, and large variations between day and night temperatures, result in very low, yet high quality, yields. The grapes are destemmed and gently pressed followed by a long maceration at controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation takes place, and then the wine is aged in new French ‘Allier’ barrels for eight months.

Tasting notes

Dark, complex and quite structured with flavours of blackberry and plum and a characterful long finish.

Food match

Enjoy with roast lamb or beef dishes and robust enough to partner quite spicy food.
