Hand picked late in the season and transported to the winery. Crushed to stainless steel fermenters with gentle hand plunging. A small proportion of whole berries were kept in the fermentation, adding bright fruit characters to the wine. Post ferment the wine was pressed and returned to oak where it has matured for 11 months.

This style of Tempranillo is very food friendly with a light body but obvious, earthy tannins enabling it to cut through lots of Spanish and Mediterranean dishes without overpowering the flavours. Reds like Tempranillo, with noticeable tannins, are ideal with food high in salt and fat to match the body/intensity of the wine. Try pairing it with charcuterie for a lighter pairing or a paella for a more hearty meal option.
