Character

Serving Temperature

18-20°C

Winemaking Process

The grapes are harvested and transported to the winery at night. After brief skin contact, yeast is added to the must and alcoholic fermentation begins at an average temperature of 25°C, in order to preserve the grape aromas of a balanced body, making it enjoyably drinkable while still young. The wine has an average of two weeks of skin contact to extract color and flavor. After pressing, the wine continues to age a little longer in the tanks with some oak contact, after which the wine blend is selected and bottled.

Tasting Notes

The wine is designed for drinking while still young, with expressive aromas of red fruit an a touch of spice. The palate is balanced and very refreshing, and is best enjoyed when lightly chilled. It exhibits a light-bodied and striking presence characteristic of this variety, and delivers a moderate and fruity finish that has you longing for more. With proper storage conditions, the wine will continue to age well for a short period of two to three years, but drinking it young seems to be the best choice for this wine.
