Description

Half Monastrell, half Syrah in full colour. This is the origin of the Demuerte collection, a striking classic red for unconventional times. One half Monastrell from more than 15 year old low yield vines, its other half is Syrah with both grown at an altitude on 700 meters. Coming from Mediterranean-continentalized climate with its rigorous dry land of very cold winters, and extremely hot summers. Planted on limestone rock soil, with the presence of carbonates and a sandy surface with clay formations which are poor in organic matter but quite healthy and permeable. Manual harvest, in 20 kg boxes, intended to take care of the integrity of each grape, preventing it from being damaged. Only the best bunches are selected. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at 24 degrees Celsius and macerated for 21 days before its malolactic conversion to extract its ripe tannins. Aging is done in French Allier oak barrels for a minimum period of 9 months. Appearance is deep purplish red colour. Nose is filled with fine well defined black and red fruit with a complex background of oak, pastries, spices, vanilla notes and to such an extent balsamic. Palate is smooth & unctuous. Serve at 16-18ºC. Certified Vegan.
