TASTING NOTES

Vineyards: Grapes picked from the original vineyard planted in 2006 by Baron Bodo von Bruemmer.

Year: The winter was hot and rainy, resulting in a very early sacking. The vegetative cycle to the close of the bunch was long and quite troubled due to a cold and extremely rainy spring, where powdery mildew was a constant threat. The summer was only felt at the end of August, and the harvest was late.

Winemaking: The hand-picked grapes went through a tight selection process in the vineyard and winery. After gently crushing the grapes the juice stayed for 3 days in cold maceration in open stainless steel vats. The fermentation took 2 weeks with a daily press of the skins. The wine aged for 14 months in 225L French oak barrels.

Winemaker Comment: Good aromatic intensity with great complexity, with hints of spices, balsamic, resin and cedar. Soft tannins and fresh acidity, creating on the palate the sensation of round structure and elegant finish.

Consumption: Should be drunk at a temperature of 18-20ºC.
