Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes go through a double selection process and are released by gravity into stainless steel tanks for pre-fermentation maceration at 5°C for 7 days. The alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24°C for 15 days. In order maintain careful, gentle handling, pumping is not used; the cap is rotated by manual pigeage throughout the fermentation, and once this is completed, post-fermentation maceration begins for 4 days. The wine then moves to new barrels of French oak, where malolactic fermentation and ageing takes place for 12 months. The following year, due to the powerful structure of the fruit, the wine is placed in a second set of new oak barrels for 24 months, completing 36 months of aging.

Tasting Notes:

Blue-black in color with violet hues. The nose is complex with notes of blackberry and wild strawberries. The pure fruit character follows through on the palate, mixing with hints of jasmine, white rose and violets, as well as the gentle spiciness of well-integrated oak from 36 months barrel-aging. The mouth feel is opulent with good depth of fruit supported by firm, underlying tannins, and the finish is long, with lasting berry flavors.
