Aromas of vanilla, cracked black pepper and dark damson fruit. On the palate this wine is round and fleshy, beautifully balanced and packed full with robust red fruit flavours and a lick of oak.
Palazzina vineyard is on the Il Cascinone estate. Vine yield is 3000 litres per hectare. The fruit is hand harvested in the second half of October (about one month later than the usual Moscato harvest). The grapes are dried on `graticci` - a traditional Italian rush mat. During this time 40% of the fruit`s weight is lost by water evaporation. In mid-December the whole bunches are pressed and then a slow fermentation is undertaken in oak barrels for 2 months followed by 12 months ageing prior to bottling.
A nose of intense lemon curd, marmalade, and citrus peel with lightly floral notes. The palate has lots of ripe apricot and acacia honey characters with honeyed sweetness, well-balanced by a citrus zest bite on the lingering finish.
A juicy, fruity red from Valencia`s indigenous Bobal grape. Vineyards are located in the north-west corner of Utiel Requena, 900 metres above sea level. Wines are made from organically grown grapes in vineyards cultivated using natural fertilisers, cover crops, biological control of pests and not using any chemical products that may damage the health of the environment.
A youthful clean, dark garnet-cherry colour. Complex aromas of red berry fruit, strawberry and blackberry. The wine shows an impressive array of flavours on the palate, great intensity and very good balance. Ripe, soft tannins bring a harmonious finish.
A beautiful candy floss pink with delicate floral hints and wild red fruit flavours, now showing some of the muscle and spice of this mature Grenache vineyard. It finishes with pink grapefruit acidity, zest and terrific purpose.
