The Wine

We arrived in Casablanca in 2011, and until 2017 we sorted grapes in the Valley. 2018 was the turning point, as this is the first harvest produced by our own vineyard, and there could be no better start! Marked by colder weather and with slower ripening, the grapes were harvested on April 30rd. They were 100% de-stemmed and cold macerated for 7 days at 5°C. The fermentation took place between 22 and 25°C, followed by a new post-fermentation maceration. The wine was stored in new and used French barrels for 13 months when we bottled it without filtering. Over time, deposits may show up at the bottom.

Accolades

2018 Harvest 

  • 93 Points: There’s loads of fresh herbs to this cab franc, such as laurel and rosemary, plus beetroot undertones. Spicy and complex with a very silky character, due to grainy tannins. Spicy and packed with undergrowth. Very characterful. (James Suckling)
  • 93 Points (La Cav)
  • 93 Points: De las dos hectáreas que esta bodega plantó en 2014, cerca de 2.200 plantas corresponden a cabernet franc. Este vino se guardó en barricas por unos 13 meses, y el resultado es un vino delicioso, fresco, con adorables notas a tabaco y especias en un cuerpo ligero, de taninos extremadamente pulidos y una acidez deliciosa, refrescante. Uno de esos vinos que se beben fácil, sobre todo con charcutería. (Descorchados)

Previous vintage

  • 93 Points: Fresh herb and dark berry with lemongrass and Thai basil aromas that follow through to a full body, round and juicy tannins and a savory finish. Serious cabernet franc.(James Suckling)
