All of the production is obtained from the Estate FINCA CAÑADA HONDA. The production area includes lime soils which are ideal for obtaining colorful wines. Also the sand textures of these lime soils benefit the ripening of the grapes.The vineyard is situated 800 – 850 meters above sea level with a N / SE orientation resulting in maximum sunlight exposure.
Only flower must (not pressed) is used for the elaboration of this wine. The fermentation is controlled at a maximum temperature of 28ºC. The maceration process lasts 14 days approximately. Scraping and crushing with rubber rollers. Vatting, devatting and malolactic fermentation in December.
Vineyard on the slope. Soil stony-sandy, with limestone.
- Training system:
The majority of the vineyard is managed under the Cordon Royal training system, although the vines are not held. This system enhances the airing of the vines, avoids the emergence of cliptogamic diseases. Also, a shading cover of the vegetation avoids the direct impact of the sun on the vines
- Tasting Notes:
This wine has a layered and vibrant nose of red cranberry, red raspberry, heat, cooked cherries and raisins. In the mouth many of the same flavors are present: raisin pie, cooked cranberries, blueberry hints. The finish seems rather soft, but then Tempranillo’s typical tannins get a little grippy. It’s ready now but wants savory and even rich foods.Doug Frost, MS, MW
