Andy's Tasting Notes

Berried fruits and plum predominate, followed by mocha, spice, toasty oak and smooth dark chocolate.  A generous and appealing style.  Not too ‘big’, yet interestingly complex and nuanced.

Production notes – Made exclusively from low-yielding, old vine Bobal fruit grown in the area known as ‘Medio Dia’ – where the soil is chalk/clay with little organic content. This, together with long hours of sunshine, and large variations between day and night temperatures, result in very low, yet high quality, yields. The grapes are destemmed and gently pressed followed by a long maceration at controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation takes place, and then the wine is aged in new American and French ‘Allier’ barrels for eight months.
