Tasting notes

Color: Sexy and suggestive. Livid, vivid and bright cherry red ("almost fluorescent" says Luis Gutierrez). Subtle and special aroma. Ripe red fruit, dairy (cream) and floral. Green tea and infusion. The palate is tasty, light, fresh and balanced with a long finish. Lively acidity. Silky touch.

Serving temperature: 14,5- 15 ºC.

Vineyards

  • Location: Mogarraz (Salamanca), Spain. Inside the Natural Park of Las Batuecas - Sierra de Francia (Biosphere Reserve)
  • First selection of soils (granitic-sandy).
  • Studied choice of the optimal time of collection (balance acidity / degree).

Elaboration

  • Vatting at low controlled temperatures.
  • Pre-fermentative maceration set on time, temperature and other parameters.
  • Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with autochthonous yeast for 12-15 days at controlled low temperature in stainless steel tanks of large-area and low height to accentuate the extraction of components. Always below 21ºC.
  • Descube (extraction of yolk wine) and light pressing (extraction of press wine).
  • Malolactic fermentation with selected lactic acid bacteria at 20ºC , in stainless steel tanks. Which aims to play down astringency and provide a more velvety feel.
  • A short aging in 100% French oak barrels,will highlight the expressiveness and provide right tannicity, well integrated into the fruitiness and vivacity of its youth.
  • No additional filtering, clarification or stabilization to avoid stealing any nuance to wine; this may bring some natural sediments over time.

Vintage: 2014

There was rain enough in Spring 2014 to compensate the vines of very dry summer. It was also an especially cold year with some nights during August where temperatures dropped to 8° C and not exceeding the 30º C with daylight excepting the last week.

  • Bottling date: May 2015
