Bodegas Nekeas chose the vineyards on the north-facing slopes of the Valley of Nekeas and those on the valley floor, looking for lightness and freshness in the final wine.
The garnacha underwent cold maceration for 5 days and was in vat for 18 days. The tempranillo also underwent cold maceration for 5 days but it was in vat for 15 days.
It has an excellent combination of the purple of the Garnacha and the cherry red of the Tempranillo. It has hints of black fruit and strawberries. It’s sweet and smooth on entering the mouth with a long, fresh finish.
