Blend is the new trend in the world of wine. These wines are made with different grapes of distinct vines, selected either for their regionality or for their variety. This characterizes them as unique wines with their own identity, in which the art of making wine is represented.
Cherry red color, medium-high layer and compact edging. Aromatic, elegant with good intensity. Memories of ripe black fruit, scrubland, balsamic. Background with touches of noble leather and vanilla. In the mouth it is complex, broad, alive. In the mouth, the fruity, mineral notes stand out, on fine sensations of cocoa. Persistent and elegant finish.
A treat to drink on its own or perfect to pair with lamb and cheese, particularly blue cheese.
The object of the coupage is to obtain a different and special wine, using the Tempranillo and Syrah varieties of several Spanish viticultural origins, which provide their own particularities. The grapes come from old vines and are collected manually. The vinifications are made in stainless steel tanks for 10-14 days with controlled temperatures of 26-28ºC. The wine remains in American oak barrels for 3-4 months until the end of the malolactic fermentation. After determining the mixture and the wines are assembled.
