Melior - 2013

2013: Rainy and mild winter, followed by a cold spring that delayed the vines’ growth cycle. Dry and mild summer, without extreme heat, which delayed the ripening process by at least 15 days compared to a normal year. Very slow but balanced final ripening, punctuated by spells of rain, with the harvest extending throughout the month of October.

The Wine:
Melior Tempranillo comes from grapes that are scrupulously selected prior to a carefully-controlled fermentation. It is stored in bottles after six months in barrels. Visually it displays dark cardinal-red tones with the purple hues of youth; very clean and bright. Good primary complexity in the bouquet, suggesting ripe red fruit blended with the tertiary spices of the aging; liquorice, coffee, vanilla. It has a full and intense body that is simultaneously cheerful and fresh, featuring an excellent level of tannins. Its notable journey through the mouth continues with sweet tannins and sensations of fruit with touches of clean wood, ending with a long and enduring finish.
