Predominantly Tempranillo (90%) with cameos from Syrah and Petit Verdot, this organic red from Valencia is unoaked and medium-bodied. Cold fermented to accentuate the fruit in the finished wine, the nose bursts with ripe cherries, raspberries and violets, with subtle peppery notes. The wine has good richness, smooth and silky with soft tannins, and a nice balance between sweet red berries and more savoury elements of leather and spice.
The organic vineyards here lie at an altitude of 600m above sea level in the south west of Valencia. Day temperatures can rise very high, imparting sweetness to the fruit, whereas nights can be very cold giving the fruit the bracing acidity it needs to produce lively wine. Rainfall is almost non-existent, allowing the grapes to concentrate flavour.
