Vineyard Notes: The Tempranillo is sourced from a range of vineyards just east of Mérida, located near the banks of the Guadiana River. The proximity to the river creates a special microclimate with humidity that decreases the irrigation needs and favors the elaboration of wines with excellent quality.
Winemaking Notes: The Tempranillo is fermented using indigenous yeast in stainless steel vats where the wine naturally decants without filtration until bottling.
Tasting Notes: The nose shows red fruit (strawberries, raspberries and cherries) and a touch of licorice. Silky on the palate, this Tempranillo has a bounce of freshness from the balanced acidity. It is the ideal companion for meat and cheese.
