This season was the coldest in the history of Don Melchor, and this, along with harvesting days later than usual, allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and reach the end of the season with exceptionally well-ripened tannins along with very good fruit expression, freshness, and personality.
This deep cherry red wine is very expressive in red fruits. The smooth attack leads to good structure with an evolution that shows fresh aromas and flavours. Red berry fruit and spicy notes stand out on the long finish.
