- Tasting Note - The consequence of a lengthy evolution in barrel and bottle, this wine has a plethora of nuances and a high level of complexity. Chamomile and dried flower fragrances stand out, with a smoky and leaf litter background. Fresh citrus aromas and ripe fruits with hints of dates and figs are also present. Finally, its salty nature shines through, providing a strong draw and engulfing all of its complexities.
- Great fullness on attack, with very silky, sweet sensations. However, its good acidity balances off the early sensations and creates a powerful mouth feel. On the finish, the texture of the wood becomes more apparent, as does the toasted character, which gives a final touch of complexity. A truly persistent wine, with a lot of personality and authenticity.
