From selected 15 to 30 year old vines grown in low yielding hillside vineyards around 600m above sea level. Soils are stony with some sand. The Tempranillo and Syrah grapes are trellised, but Garnacha is bush vine. Harvest usually takes place in the first two weeks of October. Varieties are vinified separately (22-24º C) in stainless steel with 10-15 days maceration.
Rich, plum and red berry fruit with a touch of spice on the nose. Balanced yet concentrated red fruit mingle with darker spice and chocolate characters to give weight and layers to the palate. Plump ripe tannins add grip to this classic style of Garnacha.
A perfect accompaniment to chicken dishes, paella or chorizo.
