Mesta Tempranillo 2018
Produced from our own, organically farmed vineyards in Uclés (Castile, Spain). Managed as an integrated ecosystem and studded with centenary oak trees. The continental climate with sunny days and cool nights allow us to achieve intense fruit and excellent varietal definition, while retaining remarkable freshness. Grapes are picked at night or in the early morning hours and shipped quickly to our state-of-the-art winery for destalking, light crushing and fermentation under temperature control in stainless steel. Maceration lasts for 8-10 days to achieve a perfectly balanced style without excessive extraction. No oak is used to achieve a pure expression of high-altitude Tempranillo.
Deep garnet in colour, on the nose, inviting bursts of bright red fruit aromas, liquorice, violets and toasty caramel-brulee. The palate delivers a softly balanced, velvety textured mouthfeel, it is vibrant and juicy with red berries, rosemary and a touch of liquorice.
