  • Selected and refined.

    Special selection of 100% Tempranillo from our best old vineyards, more than 40 years old. A very special Reserva, fleshy and with a great personality. Great pairing with subtle spicy dishes and stews and creamy cheeses.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    A pre-fermentation cold maceration occurs prior to alcoholic fermentation and a post-fermentation maceration in stainless steel vats with regular pumping over to achieve good colour extraction. Then comes malolactic fermentation, in contact with the lees, in carefully chosen new French oak barrels from the best cooperages in the world, and weekly stirring.

    Ageing - 16 months in the same new French oak Bordeaux-type barrels. The culmination is ageing in the bottle for a minimum of 26 months before reaching the market.

    TASTING NOTES

    Its tremendous complexity and perfect blend make it a very special reserve wine, where rather than minimising the barrel actually highlights and adds complexity to the lush ripe fruit which characterise our oldest vines.

    Dark chocolate, raisin, liqueur chocolate, eucalyptus, roasted coffee and creams rise together in perfect harmony, inviting us to escape and lose ourselves in this wine. In the mouth: it is voluminous, full and juicy and refined, with a pleasant finish which is lengthy and persistent – revealing the great personality of this wine.

    Alc/vol - 13.5%

  • REVIEWS

    'Concentrated black-fruit aromas are charred and savoury, with notes of grilled beef and black olive. A plush plump layered palate offers earthy saucy savoury plum fruit, while the finish is round, wholesome and smooth. Drink through 2023.'
