The Wine
Straw-yellow in colour with metallic and golden glints, crystal-clear with dense legs. Intense and complex aromas, displaying subtle notes from the cask ageing: spices (nutmeg and vanilla), toasted and smoky notes, hints of tropical fruit (ripe pineapple). Aeration reveals aromas of the ageing on lees (yeast), biscuity hints and white-fleshed fruit (apple). Voluptuous mouth-feel, fleshy on the palate, with well-integrated tannins adding volume together with acidity adding freshness. Very long, harmonious finish, with hints of Jijona turrón (a type of almond nougat) and a touch of citrus peel.


The Cérvoles Celler winery, which boasts cutting-edge technology, was designed to take into account the size of the various plots, so that each fermenter holds the grapes of a single grape variety and plot. Notice should be taken of the particular loading system employed: the tanks are filled from the bottom, a method that is much more gentle on the berries and avoids early lacerations of the skins.

Their barrels are an aspect to which they pay particular attention. They have made major efforts to employ the right wood and the right coopers and they use slow-growing oak wood and special toasting points. This has led them to determine which types of wood contribute the nuances and personality that they seek for good balance and appropriate complexity in their wines, which ultimately allows them to produce that characteristic bouquet of the Cérvoles wines.

Today, Cérvoles Celler has 300 barrels, most of which are new, although they use one- and two-year-old barrels as well. The barrels are all made from French oak, chosen not so much in terms of the forest where it originates but in terms of the slow-growing oak that each cooper can offer them.
