Cepa 50 - Organic

History & tradition define this wine made exclusively from organic Monastrell grapes, which is the indigenous variety of the region. From their oldest vines at 45 years. No irrigation & large temperature changes putting stress on the vines, a roundness beyond its years is created. When every bunch of grapes reaches its optimum stage of ripeness, the grapes pass through a very soft de-stemming and crushing process. The temperature is maintained at 22°C during the first days of fermentation in stainless steel tanks & afterwards it is increased to 28°C until fermentation is finished. The lower temperature preserves flavours of fresh fruits, while the following higher temperatures helps to maximize intensity of the colour & extraction of ripened tannins. Tasting Notes: Ruby red with blue overtones. Aromas of ripe fruits, plums, cherries, mineral notes with a spicy, vanilla background. Mildness & balance is emphasized together with velvety, flavoursome tannins. A wine of surprising richness, capable of displaying the nuances of Pinoso. Food Pairing: Extremely complimentary when paired with Indian cuisine. Serving Temperature: 15-17°C
