Winemaker Notes
Impressive aroma with mineral notes, wild flowers and discreet toasted notes. On the palate is noble and distinct, with a perfectly balanced acidity and an elegant finish.

Winemaker Carlos Lucas



Vinification
The harvest took place in the second week of September. The grapes were picked by hand, into small boxes of 18Kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were totally destemmed into a traditional granite "lagar", where they macerated for 24h at low temperature, before starting the fermentation at a controlled temperature. The fermentation lasted about 15 days, with homogenization by foot treading for a good extraction of a color and aromas. After the fermentation, the wine was transferred to new French oak barrels were the malolactic fermentation took place. It rested for 14 months in the barrels and a minimum of 6 months in the bottle.
