divider

Oaky on the nose with notes of red currant and dark raspberry. Creamy body of delicious cherry, plum and cassis fruit above soft vanilla. A very pretty wine, with long length and amazing complexity and balance. The grapes for this wine come from the vineyard El Puntido, 61.74 acres, in Paganos- Laguardia, Rioja Alavesa. The soils are franc-clay texture and calcareous clay composition. De-stemmed by hand with a rigorous inspection of every grape. Cold prefermentative maceration at 6º C. for the first 5 days and macerated with the skins for 13 days. Fermented in French oak barrels of 8,000 kg capacity at 28º C during 10 days. Pumped over 3 times a day during the first 5 days of fermentation and once a day during the last 5 days of fermentation. Post-fermentative maceration for 3 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in new French Bordelaise oak barrels.
