Made exclusively with Tempranillo fruit from the winery's best and oldest vineyard, the Perfume Tempranillo is the pride of Sonsierra. 100% Tempranillo and aged for 16 months in French oak and a further 8 months in bottle before release, the resulting wine is rich, spicy and full bodied - a testament to the red earth and gutsy climate it was grown in. Black cherry, raspberry, toasted coffee, dusty red earth and leather, the palate is silky and rich, firm tannins and a long finish completing the picture.
Sublime and exclusive.
Varieties: 100% Tempranillo.
Vineyards: A hand-picked special selection from our oldest (over 40 years of age), highest quality vines.
Winemaking: Cold maceration for 4 days pre-fermentation. Fermentation in stainless steel vats at a temperature-controlled 24ºC for 9 days. Malolactic fermentation in contact with the lees in a selection of 70 new Bordeaux-type French oak barrels. Choosing those which our experience over the years has shown to provide elegance, refinement and personality through their integration with the wine, the true star of the show. Aged for 16 months in the same carefully selected new Bordeaux-type French oak barrels. Minimum 8 months ageing in the bottle.
Tasting Notes: An intense deep cherry red, there are clear overtones of licorice, blackberry, blackcurrant, toffee, mocha and a hint of menthol. It is juicy, powerful and exuberant on the palate; a sensory experience that will live long in the memory. It has outstanding fruity notes (strawberry, currant and licorice), very well combined with the aromas of ageing, especially roasted and toasted coffee. The palate is long, balanced, round, with a good entry and a long finish.
