VINEYARD & TERROIR: Soil: sandy clay

The vineyard is located on high Mediterranean lands at 600m altitude with low temperatures at night.             
The vineyard is worked under strict organic agriculture methods certified by the Comité de Agricultura Ecológica de la Comunidad Valenciana CAECV.

AREA OF PRODUCTION: VALENCIA: Vineyard located on the Valencia Designation of Origin.

GRAPE VARIETY: 50% Monastrell, 50% Syrah

ALCOHOLIC CONTENT:  14.5% by Vol.

WINEMAKING: The grapes are picked at optimum ripeness. Then they go through a very careful process of vinification. Cold maceration pre-fermentation then fermentation at 26˚C with pumping over done at long intervals and with aeration.  When all the wine has been racked, only the marc remains in the vat. The wine extracted from this is vinified separarately from the free run wine. The malolactic fermentation takes place in small oak barrels.

AGING: 15 months in barrels of new French oak.

TASTING NOTES: The colour is a very dark cherry red, brilliant and clean, with beautiful, intense highlights. A clean bouquet that goes with top quality and hints at ripe red berries, almost like fruit compote. This is given an air of distinction by the toasted, spicy overtone that comes from aging in new French oak barrels. On the palate these characterful flavours are underpinned by a perfect structure, with the harmony between fruit and wood being outstanding. A wine with smooth tannins and a long-lasting. Rounded aftertaste.

FOOD PAIRING: Perfect to enjoy with red meat and rice
