How it's made
Grapes are selected from low yielding vines in Hispanic+Suizas' own vineyards. The climate is continental with Mediterranean influences, the soil is chalky-clay. The grapes are harvested in the cooler morning temperatures and then kept in cold storage for three days. After further selection and de-stalking, the grapes undergo cold maceration at 46ºF (8ºC) for four days, with daily submerging of the cap. After gentle pressing each variety is fermented and aged separately for ten months, with a further ten months maturation after blending. Fermentation and maturation is all carried out in 400L French Allier and American oak barrels.
Perfect accompaniment to roasts, red meats and steaks.
Ripe red fruit aromas with toasty vanilla and balsamic notes. The palate is full and rich with more red berry and dense black fruit flavors. Poised and well structured with balancing acidity, light smoky notes and a long finish.
