Winery Notes:
Grapes
60% Garnacha, 30% Viura and 10% Tempranillo.

Soil
Clay/Calcareous and Alluvial.

Elaboration
After about twelve hours macerating with the grape skins, the wine ferments for 25 days in small, 1000 litre wooden vats, which is where it is kept for 2 months before being bottled.

Tasting
Pale, salmon-pink colour with slightly copper-tinged hues in the bulb of the glass.

A curious vintage in terms of aromas, as we can hardly detect the typical tart apple and citrus fruits which are normally such a hallmark of this wine in other years. This time we are confronted with a whole spectrum of fruit aromas in which perhaps pears, peaches and passion fruit are the ones which stand out most. The impression is comparable with the impact on our sense of smell when we enter a fruit market: you can smell everything, it is all pleasant on the nose, but there is not just a single, clearly recognisable aroma.

In the mouth it is syrupy without being sweet, supple thanks to the work of the fine lees, and held together by the right touch of sharpness provided by the garnacha grape.
