From well-selected grapes, in perfect state of maturation and manually harvested from our own vineyards around the Finca de San Rafael. Grapes that after de-stemming fermented in 12,000-liter stainless steel tanks at 28-30ºC and that after a post-fermentation maceration of 15 to 20 days underwent malolactic fermentation. It is followed by a transfer to already used American 40% and French oak barrels 60% where they will remain for two years, aging that is completed with one year in the bottle, aging in the cellars until it is released on the market.
Tasting Notes Continuous reserve
Intense ruby red color, clean and bright. On the nose it is very expressive, its fruity expression and finesse stand out. The red fruits appear very well assembled with the spicy notes. In the mouth, it stands out for its excellent persistence and balance.
