The wine coms with an intense and compact ruby red colour. The first impression is of sweet spiciness followed by fruity hints reminding blue- and blackberries. The expanding bouquet shows well integrated roasted aromas of coffee beans and wet tobacco ending with an idea of saffron. On the palate it is juicy and elegant with creamy and silky tannins offering a full-bodied and pleasant powerful sensation. At the taste are emerging dark, perfect ripened, wooden berries combined with balsamic notes, which together with the mineral freshness are offering a perfect balance beside a long lingering and fresh aftertaste. Climate The winter 2010 was particularly cold with low average temperatures until the End of March, which allowed the vines to have the necessary growing rest. Mid of March we had a heavy snowfall and also spring was colder than usual with a lot of rainfall until the month of May. This seasonal development brought to a delay in blossoming and veraison and, as a consequence, slower plant growth too. The temperature only rose in June to reach a seasonally appropriate average but with high temperature excursion between day and night what assisted the development of aromatic flavours. July was a hot month with a lot of sunshine and no rainfall, what allowed the correct development of the pants, while August brought about 70 mm of rainfall but remaining within the maximum temperature of 32° C.The harvest started 2 weeks later than usual, respect to all our former vintages because of the delay in spring, caused by the low temperature, which was not made up during the summer months. We started the harvest with the Merlot, which lasted for 10 days with some interruptions in order to have the best ripening result. The perfect weather conditions, with sunny and windy days, allowed us to continue the harvest of all varieties, so that we finished the harvest about Mid of October, with all the grapes in the best ripening condition and with an excellent polyphenolic development and sugar balance. Vinification The carefully selected grapes were grown in the estate’s best vineyard at altitudes of 200 m a.s.l.. The fermentation and maceration in contact with the grapes took place in concave stainless steel tanks for about 28-30 days at a controlled temperature around 28/30° C. The wine was then transferred into 225 l French oak barrels (Allier and Troncais) where malolactic fermentation was completed and it was aged for 20 months. Afterwards the wine remained for a further fining in bottle at least 12 months before its release on the market. Alcohol: 14,5%
