    Tasting notes

    Clean and light red in color. Produced to drink by itself but specially good for food. On the nose, you may find good mineralty and freshness with red fruit, strawberrys and cherry with a light touch of the wood. On the palate, a vibrant crispy acidity, mineralty and salty with a good structure from the old vines and ageing with the lees. Intensity and good mouthfeel with medium mouthfeel, balanced and light smoke from the ageing in barrel. This wine will age well in bottle. Good by itself and with low/medium fat dishes. Fish, white meat, poultry and pasta.
