Technical notes: So de Sirah has been harvested fresh early in the morning. 50% of the grapes are partially destemmed and placed in a covered tank without crushing to make a leisurely carbonic maceration at a temperature of 28-29° C. The other half is traditionally fermented in steel tanks. Grapes aregently pressed to take only de run off and the best press wine. After a cold gravity racking, the wine is clarified (gelatin and egg albumin), filtered and ready for bottling. Electrical and water consumption is minimized in the working process. The transport distance of both grapes and fractionation raw material (bottles, taps and boxes) has been reduced to the maximum. All waste and residuals are valued and recycled (distillation and composting of marc and stems). With these considerations, the resulting carbon footprint of producing a bottle lock and released is 3.2 kg CO2/bottle.

Tasting Notes: Covered cherry color. Violet edges denote its youth. Intense and expressive nose of red fruits in season.Notes of banana and freshly baked bread. The taste is rich and balanced. A final reminiscent of sweet red licorice.

  Service: Serve between 13 and 15ºC
Aging Potential = 2 years

Vineyard: The grapes come from lime-sandy Sirah vineyards on trellis located near Fuente La Higuera, and from irrigated vines on clay loam soil on La Vall dels Alforins.

Weather: The 2011 has been a year of great quality in the DO Valencia. There has been spaced rainfall throughout the growing cycle of the vine. High temperatures were recorded the first weeks of March, allowing the sap to move and accelerate sprouting. Spring had no episode of major storms or frosts so the vines came into bloom and fruit set in the right way. Despite having a month of June somewhat milder than usual, average temperatures soon rose to find a maximum of 36 and 34 in August and September respectively. The summer has been particularly dry in the Valld'Albaida and Alforins, which advanced the ripening of all varieties, especially late maturing reds (Monastrell, Cabernet, etc.). The rain recorded till harvest day was 120 mm. No problem of fungi in the vineyard.
