Maceration: 21-35 days. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. Soft filtering.

 

Aging: in concrete vats for 6 months before bottling.

 

Production: 4,000 bottles (0,75L) Analysis: 14,5 % ABV 4,4 g/l tartaric acid 1,1 g/l residual sugar

 

Taste note: Medium cherry color. Floral and red fruit aromas on the nose. On the palate it emphasizes those fragrant floral notes that stand out over the cherries and red currant. The acidity this wine holds keeps it fresh and vibrant.

 

Food pairing: The freshness and acidity from this Garnacha of Limestone soil is beautifully paired with duck, venison and pork roasted plates, where the acidity cuts nicely through the fat of this plates. Honey roasted veggies and cremes are outstanding companions as well.
