Azul y Garanza
95% Merlot & 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
From six certified organic vineyard parcels located next to the Bardenas Reales Desert - about 5 hectares on extremely arid clay-calcareous based soils at an altitude of 337 meters, oriented East-West. Berry size and yields are extremely small.
Primary and malolactic fermentation in concrete (native yeast) followed by 12 months aging in 225L French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in bottle.
TASTING NOTES |
The naturally low yields and small berry size lead to fantastically concentrated fruit while maintaining structure and acidity. Notes of black fruits are embellished with chocolate and a delicious light toasted note. A smooth, rounded palate with layers of ripe tannins and full flavors. Built to last - the wine will continue to improve in bottle over time.
