The palate is expressive, complex and long. More structured than other rosés in its category since it is 100% Tempranillo fermented in barrel and aged on lees. Good balance between alcohol, acidity and tannin, resulting in an easy to drink wine with a powerful lengthy palate and a dense, balsamic and refreshing finish.

The weather in the summer of 2021 was marked by drought and this lack of rain at the start of the harvesting season reduced the size of the berries.
The harvest of the red varieties coincided with a change in the weather: the rains had a very positive effect on the ripening cycle, accelerating it and marking a specific harvesting time for each vineyard and plot. Although the percentage of Tempranillo harvested was 10% lower, the red grapes of this vintage came in healthy, powerful and of outstanding quality.
The wines from 2021 surprise with their expressive and rich range of intense and lively colours.
On the nose, the red and black fruit tones stand out, together with mineral and floral hints.
On the palate, the tannins are pleasant and illustrate wines with perfect balance.
