Tasting Notes
“Cherry red in colour with a garnet rim, clean and deep. The nose is very intense and elegant, with hints of black fruit and spicy notes, well blended with the ageing in wood, resulting in a very balanced and rounded wine. On the palate it is intense, voluminous and with a long, lingering aftertaste.”

Winemaking
“The 2018 vegetative cycle began with an extraordinarily rainy April and May. The rainfall sat below the historical levels during the summer months, which helped to balance the cycle. Temperatures were very close to normal for the region, except during the last stage of ripening when they were above average. This helped to bring the year to a close with optimum ripeness levels and great balance in the grapes. Its alcoholic fermentation is made at a controlled temperature in steel tanks for 26 days followed by malolactic fermentation for 30 days in French oak barrels. It is aged in French oak barrels.”

Story
Malabrigo is the name given to our most emblematic vineyard. The plots characteristics are its loamy and sand-clay souls and the extreme climatic conditions with important temperature fluctuations between day and night. All of these aspects give a great importance to the concept terroir aiding it to reach extraordinary levels and gives it character.”

94 Points Decanter – “Bright and seductive black fruit, oak, spice and floral bouquet. The palate is concentrated with notes of creamy vanilla, ripe dark cherries and spicy blueberry. Will age well.”
