Bright and medium-deep garnet in colour with a great aromatic intensity and complexity on the nose. Aromas typical of Tempranillo haromise with those of ageing, toasted and balsamic notes, giving great Gran Reserva typicity. On the palate - round, structured, with good integration of the barrel-ageing notes and the ripe black fruit. Its finish is long.
Citronella and lemongrass aromatics envelop more subtle primary fruit that include peach skin and naartjie peel. Then also hints of vanilla, baked apple, marzipan and honey. The palate possesses verve and savoury grip, with elements of crushed river pebble, rock salt and flint, but also a grainy, pithy textural element akin to walnut and hard pear. There is real weight and mouth-filling substance, even at 12,5% ABV with complexity gained from lees contact and completely integrated oak. Bone dry, savoury finish.
