150cl * 13.5% ABV * Rioja, Spain

Harvest 2016 was very unusual; a very late harvest date, characterized by good weather and high temperatures, which provided excellent conditions for tasty, healthy and very clean fruit of good quality, colour and structure.

After being destemmed, the grapes are placed into stainless steel tanks to ferment for ten to twelve days, after which time malolactic fermentation is used while the wine is aged in French oak barrels, then transferred to American oak barrels and aged for thirteen to fourteen months.

Aromatic intensity with forest fruits such as blackberries and wild cranberries intermingled with black liquorice, vanilla and nutmeg from time spent in oak. The perfect balance of tannin and acidity.

Perfect with barbecued lamb, creamy and also strong cheeses, and classic pizza and pasta dishes. Drink until 2024.
