Spain’s most internationally famous wine region is renowned for creating top quality wines with exceptional ageing ability. It lies in northern Spain, by the side of the River Ebro from which the region’s name derived. Elegance and poise is the hallmark of the wines shaped in this ancient region. The variety of its soils, together with the combination of modern and traditional growing practices allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines that exhibit different personalities, always within the framework that their long-established Qualified Denominación de Origen demands from them.
This is a bright wine with an intense ruby red colour and youthful purple tones. It carries intense aromas of red fruit. Pleasingly fresh, the palate is long, rounded and well balanced. Its finish is long with hints of black berries.
A perfect supplement to Caesar salads, pasta, rice or chicken dishes.
The grapes are carefully selected and lightly crushed and cooled to allow for a period of maceration (48-72 hours) where the juice and the skins are in contact. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks takes place at controlled temperature between 21-23 °C.
