Grape varieties: Monastrell.
Vineyard: over 40 years old vines of Monastrell, located in Salinas, near the Valley of Vinalopó, on sandy and slightly saline soils. Goblet-pruned vines with a limited production.
Altitude: 550 m.
Harvest: by hand in October 2017.
Characteristics of the vintage: 2017 was a quite hot and dry year, with a cooler September whose moderate temperatures favored the maturation of the Monastrell.
Winemaking: maceration for 6 days with a very gentle batonnage. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked to French new oak barrels of 300 liters, where it was aged on its own lees for 11 months.
Tasting notes: medium-high intensity color that indicates vivacity and elegance. On the nose there is a very pleasant blend of ripe black and red fruit with hints of sweet fine pastries and creamy red fruit, giving way to an enveloping and rounded wine. In the mouth, it shows an elegant and very tasty entry, leaving a pleasant feeling. Noticeable well-balanced acidity and well integrated tannins. The long aftertaste reaffirms the pleasant sensation of creaminess, inviting you to prolong the pleasure with one more sip, over and over again.
Food pairing: cheeses, pates and foie gras, cold cuts and cured meats, all kinds of meats, stews and casseroles. Good combination with black chocolate and red jams.
