PRODUCER: Some interesting thoughts from Martín: “There is a saying that goes “I wanted to change the World, but nothing changed, I changed myself and everything changed”. I believe that really defines my organic philosophy”. His whole life he’d felt attracted to nature and country life. After too many years working with no fulfillment, at the age of 32 he managed to acquire some land where he started to cultivate a vineyard, olive trees, quince trees and other fruits trees, always being convinced that a healthy, loved and respected soil produces healthy fruits. When Martin started to grow the vineyard this way, his farmer neighbours mistrusted his methods, but after many years they have begun to believe that this is a good way and they are changing their methods for the better. The initial scepticism has transformed into unbridled enthusiasm.
WINEMAKING: Harvest is manual, grapes are destemmed , wild yeast ferment in stainless steel. Some temperature control at fermentation but malolactic done with no temperature control in tank. Light cold stabilisation, very Light filtration. Use of very little sulphur.
TASTING NOTES: Deep red in the glass with a purple hue. Perfumed aromas of raspberries, redcurrants, black pepper and liquorice. The palate is mineral and smooth with subtle flavours of cassis and summer red fruits leading to a spicy finish.
