Sombra Botella Solar de Becquer Joven


Classic and elegant

I. VARIETALS: 80% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha.

II. ALCOHOL: 12,5% Vol.

III. VINEYARDS AND HARVEST: Located on the south of Monte Yerga on the sunny side of the slopes, the Cuesta de la Reina Estate commences at an altitude of 450 meters and ascends to 800 meters. The soils, clayey-calcareous, are very poor and with abundance of boulders. The estate of 120 Hectare has belonged to the family for four generations and the family itself has always cultivated the vineyard.
The Harvest was done in mid-October for both the Tempranillo and the Garnacha grapes. The grapes are collected in fruit boxes to avoid any kind of crushing.

IV. ELABORATION: The harvested grapes are transported to the winery, and emptied directly into the tanks where the grape bunches remain in maceration for 12 days in order to go to the press. By gently pressing the skins and stems are separated of the must. The must continues to ferment slowly at low temperature.

V. TASTING: Cherry red color with purple hues that highlight his youth. Clean in the nose with aromas of little wild berries, red fruits and anise. On the palate, a warm presence, slightly astringent what proposes a pleasant finish. Clean retro nasal with a fruit predominance.

VI. FOOD MATCH: Creamy cheeses, dressed meat without too much pepper and white meat with creamy sauces.
