Vinification Hand-picked at their optimum point, the grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and vinified according to a process that is based on a careful maceration with extraction of color, tannins and aromas from the skins, complemented by permanent pumping over during fermentation. This takes place in presses, at a controlled temperature between 28-30ºC, until reaching the desired Baumé degree. At this stage, the wine spirit is added (benefit), giving rise to a fortified wine. High quality wine from a single harvest. It ages in wood for variable periods of time, never less than 7 years, and is later bottled according to market requests.
Test Results Reddish in color with slight brownish nuances. Aroma of fruit in syrup combined with notes of spice and dried fruit. In the mouth it is fresh and delicate where the character of aging in wood is very present, ending long and dense but always elegant and seductive.
Gastronomy It goes well: sweets with tropical fruits; dry fruits; hard cheeses and sweets with caramel.
