Wine tasting

Yellow-gold hue, clean, and attractive. Smooth-bodied.
Great intensity. Clear and toasted notes from barrels reminiscent of nuts. Slightly bitter finish. Sweet and mellow with accents of tropical fruits and tangerine.
With a hint of sweetness, strong-bodied and biscuity complexity. Very balanced. Lingering, round mouth, and long finish.

Because of its tannic levels and artisanal manufacture, over time this wine can develop lees.

Winery

The wine is manufactured in rented premises but we own the silos, the equipment and the casks needed for carrying out all the traditional process.
