The 2019 vintage was a very extraordinary vintage in El Valle de La Raja, with an unexpected end. a meteorological phenomenon called DANA. After a dry winter, we had an excellent spring and summer. Allowing our monastrell to mature to perfection. However, the harvest was affected by DANA, with heavy rains that affected the entire Mediterranean. Luckily, those rains were less intense in the “Altiplano” of Murcia. Due to that. we delaved the start of the harvest till 25th of September, finishing the 100,000 kg of grapes, on the 15th of October, which is almost a month, giving us the possibility to make a very careful selection.
90% Monastrell, 7% Syrah and 3% Petit Verdot. The 100,000 Kilos of Monastrell come from 45 hectares of vineyards between 6 and 80 years old, 70% owned and 30% on lease, surrounding the winery in a maximum diameter of 10 km. The Syrah and the Petit Verdot are 6 years old, both vineyards bordering the left and right sides of the winery.
Aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.
Thie fruit-rentered red in full of hlank charn, nim and mirrant flaure emoke and earth notod and a criso herbal edae add tension. Some smoky and earthy touches stand out, with a touch of fresh grass that adds tension to the wine. Well-intearated tannins and balsamic acidity aive structure. Great wine.
