Tinto Segundo Año

Variety
90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano.
Vineyards
Our Finca El Estanque is a vineyard of more than 60 hectares. There, we have selected three small plots where vines more than 35 years old survive in clay-limestone soil of exceptional quality for grape growing. There, the grapes ripen slowly and evenly, with a perfect balance between acidity, sugar content and phenolic ripeness.
Harvest
Picked manually in small boxes. Tempranillo in mid October and Graciano in late October.
Winemaking
Made in concrete tanks. All varieties were vinified separately. After light destemming and crushing, the must macerates in contact with the skins. Fermentation at a controlled temperature of 30 °C for eighteen days. The two wines are blended before barrelling.
Ageing
Aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. Refined in bottle for a further 10 months.
Tasting notes
Highly intense dark-cherry with a purple rim denoting its youth. Aromas of fresh fruit set off against a spicy, mineral background. Meaty and expressive in the mouth, with an enticingly long, elegant, fresh finish.
Food Pairing
The perfect companion to Mediterranean cuisine, including red meats and milder stews. Ideal to drink by the glass to accompany tapas.
