Tasting Note: Light pink in colour with good acidity, a medium+ intense nose & a long length on the finish. This wine features: Cherry, strawberry, thyme, Kalamata olives & Champagne mushrooms.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: “On arrival at the winery both the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes underwent cold pre-fermentation maceration for several hours, which extracted as much as possible of their primary aromas. Next, they underwent static debourbage at 5ºC, then alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature below 22ºC immediately afterwards. Finally, the wine was bottled in January 2022 and rested in bottle at least 2 months before being released to the market.”

Pairings: Drink this now or in 2-3 years, on its own or pair it with Paella Valenciana.

My Opinion: Recommended
