Classic ruby red with a terracotta hue. Lifted aromas of red berries, cola, vanilla and subtle garden herbs. Ripe fruit flavour is pulled elegantly firm with fine sandy tannins and perky, refreshing acidity. This is an expressive yet refined Tempranillo with excellent intensity offering itself as a wonderful partner to many cuisines. Totally de-stemmed before a long, cool fermentation with daily hand-plunging to achieve colour and phenolic extraction. The wine spent a total of 15 days on skins. Aged for 24 months in a combination of newer and older French and American oak before bottling and a further two years maturation in the underground cellars of Muriel before release.

James Suckling

Plenty of dried flowers, dark berries and sandalwood on the nose. Full body. Firm with silky tannins. Gorgeous. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator

This generous red is rich and round, with ripe tannins and orange peel acidity. Cherry, dried currant, licorice, vanilla and spice flavours are ample yet focused. A balance of traditional and modern styles.

An explosion of dried fruit, wild strawberries and dark chocolate; exceptionally smooth and supple with a very long, flavoursome finish.
