Winemaking

The grapes are handpicked for Moristel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties, mechanically harvested for Tempranillo. The grapes are de-stemmed. Fermentation takes place over a period of about 15 days at 18 C during the first 3 days, thereafter at 23 C for a week and at 29 C in the ultimate week. 4 daily pumping with intake of oxygen allow for complete fermentation.

Tasting

TINTO JOVEN: Young red wine (Tinto which means red and Joven, young) elaborated with Cabernet Sauvignon (which brings acidity and ability to age in oak and in the bottle), Merlot (medium body wine known for its softness, colour and freshness), Tempranillo (ruby red colour commonly blended with other varieties), and Moristel (a unique variety found only in Aragon that adds youthful exuberance, body and colour to the wine). The TINTO JOVEN is a ruby colour wine of medium intensity with aromas of blackberry and violet petals. This wine is very pleasant in the palate with dominant flavours of cherry and plum with an elegant, slightly tannic, finish. A full-bodied red wine ideally served with red meats, strong cheeses, pasta with tomato sauce… Serve at 18°C.
