Description

Complex with grilled red pepper, raspberry and blackberry fruit, dried plums mingled with tobacco and mocha. Velvety texture with soft and fleshy tannins in a nicely integrated finish. The vines are vertically positioned, spaced at 1.5 x 2.2 m and drip irrigated. Our vineyard canopy management begins in the spring with the elimination of undesired shoots. The crops are green harvested to eliminate short shoots. Alluvial soils, loam to clay-loam in texture with moderate fertility. Most of the grapes were hand picked, although a portion was mechanically harvested to ensure the optimal level of ripeness in the fruit. Upon arrival at the cellar, the grapes were carefully destemmed. 100% of the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks for a period of 15–18 days at temperatures that varied between 25°–28°C (77°–82°F) with 3 to 4 pumpovers daily that moved from 40% to 80% of the total volume, as determined by enological tastings. The wine was stabilized for 15–20 days at 4°C (39°F) and laterearth-filtered prior to bottling. Food Recommendation:- Enjoy with red meats, roasted lamb and veal. Best served at 17º – 19° Celsius. (63ºF)
