Wine type: Red
Grape: Tinta del País (Tempranillo)
Ageing time: 27 months
The winery and vineyards, established by Juana de Haza in the 12th century, has an area of 10,000m2, production and bottling capacity of 18 million bottles a year, and capacity of 10,000 American oak Bordeaux barrels. Modern whilst maintaining its character and historic constructions, this winery was awarded best winery in Spain for 2 years running.
This wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 425 days, during which 3 decantings are performed to help oxygenate the wine. After this period, the wine remains in the bottle for another 12 months to complete the ageing period.
In the nose, this wine suggests fruity aromas, with hints of wild fruit, a vanilla base, and sweet notes. Mature on the palate, full of nuances with a pitch of intensity, it has a rich finish with ripe tannins and an elegant and long aftertaste.
This wine pairs perfectly with beef, small game, and cheese. We recommend uncorking or decanting for a while prior to tasting, to fully appreciate its virtues.
We recommend serving between 16–18°C.
