colored, it offers aromas of toasted bread, mineral, violets, black
cherry, and blueberry. Velvety on the palate, it has layers of savory
dark fruit, rich flavors, excellent balance and a pure finish.
Founded in 1925 in the town of Yecla, Bodegas Senorio de Barahonda is owned by the Candela family. The estate spans 840 acres and is located in one of the few wine regions in Spain that has been unaffected by phylloxera. Proximity to the Mediterranean provides a maritime climate with little rain – ideal growing conditions for Monastrell, Syrah, Tempranilla and Merlot. The vineyards are composed of a limestone and chalk topsoil with clay and gravel underneath and are organically farmed.
|This wine is 100% un-oaked Monastrell. The best bunches are
hand-picked and gently crushed. The skins and stems are
macerated before and after fermentation, for a total of 14 days. The
wine aged 3 months in stainless steel before bottling.
