Analytical Parameters
Grading: 13.5% Vol.
PH: 3,6
TA: 5.0 gr/l in tartaric acid
Procedures: 30 minutes after collection in 15kg boxes, the Petit Verdot grapes are placed in a refrigerated room at 5°C until the temperature stabilises before the best fruits are manually selected.
A short maceration is carried out for 4-5 days at a temperature of 20ºC followed by alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with cold stabilisation at -4ºC. 12 months in 300l French oak barrels, of nine different coopers and different toasts. Then 12 months in natural caves at 14°C average temperature.

Tasting notes
The appearance is a nice, covered ruby colour with violet hues yet despite being a 2009. Notable varietal character on the nose, with hints of banana and pencil lead, deep balsamic that gives a lot of freshness and enveloping aromas of black fruit compote. The palate is fleshy and creamy, with excellent balance between acidity and fruit weight. Marked minerality on the palate, which puts us in the land from which it comes. As mentioned before, the wood appears in perspective providing spicy and toasted nuances. The finish is long and rich. A truly elegant wine and highly recommended.

Serving temperature: 17ºC
Food pairings: All kind of meats.

Find it in Spaninabox at a very special price.
