Winemaker's Notes:

Garnacha, the key variety in the composition of this wine, has no fear of harsh weather conditions. It shows itself at its best, if that is possible, in hot, dry years. That is why we can say that 2011 is its crowning year. It brings the necessary freshness and crispness which are essential to a jolly, appealing wine made to be enjoyed in a tasting

The wine’s attack on the nose brings reminders of tart fruit: unripe peaches, pineapple, passion fruit… all with a touch of flowers, especially white blossom, perhaps from the significant proportion of white Viura grapes.

Its period left on the lees underpins the acidity in such a way that its presence is obvious but not intrusive, thanks to the softening influence of the polysaccharides. As you sip it your mouth seems to fill with sweet, chewy fruit. As it passes over the palate the sensations move towards sharp apples, before ending in the retronasal phase with a total dominance of white blossom and ripe fruit.

60% Garnacha, 30% Viura and 10% Tempranillo
