Grape Variety: A blend that varies from harvest to harvest but always based on Mediterranean and classic Bordelaise varieties.
Winemaking Notes: Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are destemmed and gently crushed. After fermentation in tanks and pressing, the wine is transferred to new French oak barrels. During the first months of maturation, each vineyard’s produce is kept separate. Afterwards, we hold a series of tastings to determine the right “blend” from the most outstanding barrels in every harvest. Once the right blend has been crafted, the wine is returned to the barrels where it will mature further for another 18 months. To preserve its unique flavors, the wine is bottled after coarse filtration alone and is already ready for drinking, although it will mature well in the bottle over the next decade. Special Reserve Red is the winery’s signature red wine and as such, is produced only in the best harvests.
Tasting Notes: Special Reserve Red is a rich, full-bodied wine with balanced acidity allowing it to mature over many years. The wine has a bouquet of chocolate and berries, black pepper and Mediterranean spices.
