This Tempranillo is sourced from highly selective parcels of 100-Year-Old Vines in Central Spain. These low yielding vines bare fruit with the most wonderful natural balance. The vineyards sit approximately 600 metres above sea level with a warm continental climate. The grapes mature over the growing season to their optimal ripeness, they are hand-picked and then the bunches are hand selected before fermentation.
Food Paring: Pate, Steaks, Roast Lamb, Game, Lamb curry, Wintery stews and casseroles.
Tasting Note: “Beguiling aromas of wild strawberry, cherry with a hint of vanilla. Extremely concentrated on the palate, doubtless from old vines with low yields, but no sign of over-extraction. The power remains restrained because the wine has balance. The acidity is fresh and pure, the tannins present but fine, with no sense of astringency. Very good persistence on the finish, but not at all heavy”. Alun Griffiths MW
