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 an 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.
Limestone with sandstones. Shallow profile soil.
- Training system:
The vines are guided by the Gullot doble 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:
Bright and juicy red plums and cherries with fresh red flowers. The palate has a smooth and evenpaced feel with ripe raspberries and blackberries. Cassis and violets to close. Fruit-driven. Drink now.James Suckling
Clear violet color. Fruity aromas of creme de cassis, lingonberry, pine, violet, and bee pollen with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a tingling, compelling, medium-length cedar, graphite, dried blueberry, and spice cabinet finish with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak. Fruit and oak are harmoniously balanced in this gulpable red for the table.Tastings.com
Earth, rubber, leafy notes, spice and plum aromas carry the nose on this 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo. The mouthfeel is full and tomatoey, with snappy acidity pushing minty, herbal flavors of red plum, currant and raspberry. A light, medicinal flavor defines the finish.Wine Enthusiast
- Enjoy with:
Ideal with grilled red meats, hard Spanish cheeses including aged sheep, pork, chops/loin, stews.
