(plus tax and bottle deposit)
Produced only in the best vintages and with the best grapes from the 2.7ha La Barraca property, the blend is comprised of 63% Cabernet Franc and 37% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Cabernet Sauvignon undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels and the Cabernet Franc, in deposits. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels and lightly ﬁltered before bottling.
Intense cherry red in colour, with ﬁne violet reﬂections, abundant and dense tears fall down the glass. On the nose, the intense and powerful notes of red fruit are fresh, ripe and candied. This is enhanced by toasty aromas provided by the oak.
On tasting, the wine is equally intense, warm and has a wide attack. Fleshy, sweet and tasty on the mid-palate, the wine expands to show ripe fruit, well balanced notes of tobacco and hints of fine sherry. The ripe tannins lead to a long ﬁnish that delivers concentrated dried black fruit and herbal spice.
