Our best selection of old Garnatxa, Syrah and Carinyena come together in a wine to lose yourself in.

Elaboration

Harvested by hand and collected in small 20-kg boxes at the best moment for each variety and vineyard. Grapes are cooled to 4ºC for 24 hours before the production process begins. Grapes are destemmed and grapes are then selected at the sorting table and put into different kinds of deposits – wood, stainless steel and concrete – to macerate and begin fermenting. Part of the wine is then transferred to 5,000-litre foudres while the rest completes the malolactic fermentation process and ages for twelve months in 500-litre French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

A lively intense colour with a claret body and bright ruby-red rim. Aromas of black fruit and spices are accompanied by a stony minerality. Full-bodied in the mouth with flavours of deliciously ripe fruit and smooth tannins. Fruity and toasted notes enrichen the structure and natural complexity of the old vines. Displaying a full and rounded sensation, it is a perfect wine for accompanying all kinds of grilled meat.
