This wine is produced from a selection of best grapes from the 90 year old Fuente Santa vineyard. They come from lower yielding vines averaging 3,500 kg/ha. All grapes were manually harvested into small boxes. The wine was fermented in a 5,000 kg wooden vat with native yeasts and saw 15 days contact with skins. After fermentation the wine was racked to oak barrels and underwent a natural malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged for 20 months in 100% New French oak barrels. Bottled unfiltered and without clarification. This wine has a very intense aromas of toasty oak spice, dark cherry liqueur like fruit and a host of dark spices, molassis and black licorice, a fiarly drinkable wine even in its youth with a good hand of spice through the finsih, big but still quite balanced with lots of spice at the end. Most Excellent
