The grapes come from the oldest vineyards between 80 and 100 years old from the “Cuesta la Reina” estate owned by the family for four generations. The manual harvest was carried out in the month of October. No pumping system was used in the process, only gravity to avoid damaging the fruit.
The fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts from the vineyard itself, controlling the temperature at 30ºC. The total duration of the maceration was 32 days. Once uncovered, the wine was transferred to French Allier and Romanian oak barrels, where it was racked 5 times. It was bottled in June (2 years later), remaining in the bottle for 12 months before being put on sale.
Becquer Solar Tasting Notes
Very covered cherry red color. Fine aromas and elegant creamy toasted aromas and ripe fruit, with a lot of expression and complexity. In the mouth it is powerful, fleshy and round, very rich in nuances, complex and elegant aftertaste.
