The weather is very cold in the winter with temperatures reaching 20ºC below zero. The summers are very hot and temperatures often may exceed the 40ºC degrees.
Only the finest Bobal grapes are selected. Then a light crushing is performed. After that the must is fermented at a controlled temperature (75ºF – 82ºF) in stainless steel deposits. The fermentation process lasts around 14 days. After the fermentation, the wine goes to American Oak barrels and is aged for 6 months.
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:
Black violet color. Aromas and flavors of blackberry jam, black licorice, cedar, clove, graphite, and tobacco with a lightly tannic, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a silky, delightful, medium-length finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A rich Spanish red with great fruit and toasty notes of tobacco; easy to love.Tastings.com
Resiny oak aromas rest atop blackberry, raisin and prune scents on what amounts to a full but lazy nose. This Bobal is fleshy and tannic, with spiked acidity that provides a needed shock. Sappy berry, plum and resiny oak flavors finish jammy and tannic.Wine Enthusiast
- Enjoy with:
