    The wine

El Zarzal

The year 2016 began with heavy rains in April and May. At the beginning of the summer, the climate became drier and warmer than usual, correcting the imbalances caused by a very rainy spring. September had its regular characteristics, which allowed a regular and graduated harvest.

Tasting notes

Pale golden in colour, clean and bright. Clean and open on the nose, with a prominent stone fruit base, subtle citrus aromas and white flowers. The nearly imperceptible toasted notes ripen to add complexity to the aromatic profile of the wine. On the palate it is fresh and bright, with good weight and polished nuances.

Elaboration

Fermented in wood at a controlled temperature, followed by ageing on lees in 2500l “fudres” of French wood for 8 months.

La Felisa

OUR ORGANIC WINE AND A TRIBUTE TO OUR MOTHER

This is an organic wine made using organic grapes that retain the benefits of red wine, namely the tannins, anthocyanins and antioxidants. The cool temperatures at the start of spring and the abundant rainfall delayed the budding of the vineyard slightly. The rain, which has been retained in the soil, will be very important for the rest of the vine's growing cycle. Spring was followed by a summer with temperatures slightly higher than normal. Rainfall in the summer was similar to the average of recent years. However, September was particularly dry. Even so, the water reserves in the soil accumulated in winter and spring were sufficient for optimum plant performance. The result: A balanced and abundant harvest with very ripe grapes.

Tasting notes

In the glass, very good depth and a solid, bright, ripe cherry red. The nose is dominated by notes of the purest, most primary Tinto Fino variety, reminiscent of black fruits, violet and licorice There are also notes of toffee and vanilla. Lively mouth with a prominent but ripe tanning and a long finish.

Elaboration

18 days maceration on lees.
