    CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARD

    The wines come from the Santa Creu section of the Sumarroca estate. The soil in this section has very low levels of organic matter, with high levels of limestone and deep gravel deposits.

    HARVEST

    For the 2011 vintage, the winter was cool and rainy, so bud-break occurred at the normal time. Early spring was very dry with high temperatures typical of early summer up until late May, when a period of rain brought temperatures down. This weather continued until the beginning of August, making the early part of summer more like a cool spring. After this, the temperatures rose to above-average levels, with very little rain.

    TASTING NOTES

    Cherry colour, purple around the edges. Intense bouquet of mature fruit such as blackberry and blueberry, together with cedar and spices. Well structured and balanced on the palate with concentrated mature fruit flavours and hints of spices. Long finish.

    WINEMAKING

    Separate wine-making processes for each variety. Fermentation at 26ºC and maceration for at least 12 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 20ºC. The wine is then aged for 12 months in new and second vintage oak barrels, most of them French, to ensure the right tannin balance.
