Production

Grapes come from 40 year old bush vines. Vineyards are 700 m above sea level to the north east of Jumilla, on sandy, chalky, rocky soil. The grapes were hand-harvested. Fermented in stainless steel. Aged in French and American oak for around 4 months.

Tasting notes

The nose has rich plum and blackcurrant pastille characters, with delicate vanilla spice and cedar. The palate is ripe, smooth and opulent with layers of pure blackcurrant, juicy blackberry, lush spicy plum and cherry fruit, minerality and fine tannins on the finish.

Food match

Hearty meat and vegetable stews, rustic sausages, grilled meat.
