This wine results from a careful vinification by the classic “tanning” process, fermentation in stainless steel tanks with temperature control. The aging process took place over 1 year, passing the wine through small oak barrels.
When young, it has a ruby color and great tannin aggressiveness, characteristics that fade as it ages. Very characteristic nose of the variety, related to sour cherry and light cedar resin. In the mouth it has an Atlantic and balsamic character. Dry and austere texture with a strong mineral acidity.
Medium intensity yellow color. Citrus and baked apple notes. Herbal sensation (aniseed and honey). Medium body, sweet and sour, very fresh
and pleasant. With ageing, the wine loses a little of its initial fresh style, retaining the elements that make it unique. The aromas become more
distinct with the emergence of toasted notes of dried fruit, iodine, wax and hay.
