  • Details

    This wines pays homage to our local grape and is the essence
    and “Spirit” of the Monastrell!
    Cherry red colour. The nose is powerful with hints of ripe and floral fruit. On the palate it is powerful and elegant, with a long, persistent finish.
    The grapes for this wine come from 50 year old Monastrell vines, which are low yielding and produce concentrated grapes. Called bush vines, these vines lay low to the ground, and with age branch out and resemble small trees. As a result of this harvest has to be
    carried out by hand. Fermentation takes place during 15 days at ~25°C. Following this, the wine is transferred and aged for 4 weeks in French and American oak.
