The aim is to showcase the fruit, an outcome that we are delighted to have achieved! Tempranillo is shy of serious heat, so the relatively mild conditions of the '22 vintage suited it perfectly, allowing greater fruit expression and perfume. Fermented in open vessels with gentle handling of the fruit to ensure even maceration, freshness, texture, and depth, then aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. Bottled in December 2022, we have retained the freshness and aromatic intensity of the grape, while allowing some evolution of the tannins for which it is famed. The wine oozes with aromas of plums, ripe cherries and soft spices that flow from nose to palate, where they are supported by pleasantly savoury, dry tannins.
