Grape Varieties: Carignan (45%), Grenache (35%), Syrah (20%)
Sandy-granitic soil (Gresa) (elegance): Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, lyre trellis to improve cluster and leaf sun exposure, to obtain maximum photosynthetic function and, therefore, a complete ripening of the grape.
Slaty soil (mineral): Old selected Carignan vines with low yields, about 1 kg/grapevine.
Harvest & Vinification
Hand picking harvest in crates of 10 Kg, carrying out a first selection in the vineyard and a second sorting berry by berry in the cellar.
Cold soak (4ºC) and alcoholic fermentation (controlled temperature over 26ºC) in small and wide stainless steal and oak vats. Long maceration and pressing at very low pressure. Ageing process in French oak barrels, takes 18 months, combining fine and extra fine grain to obtain more complexity and also enhanced by stirring the lies and malolactic fermentation in them.
Bottled in May 2012 without fining or filtering.
Deep cherry color.
Berries and cherry aromas, mineral notes on a balsamic and mediterranean herbs background.
On the palate is intense, unctuous, greedy and fruity with a ripe tannin, fresh and long finish.
