In 1996, Nicholas Hammeken, who already had experience in marketing and selling wine in various European countries, opened his own business. At first, the company was just selling and reselling wines from other wineries, but then, in 2001, they had their first own line of wines. The company follows the latest global trends in order to produce wine of very good quality and at a relatively inexpensive price from local Spanish grape varieties.

Winemaking

12-25 year old vines. Yield of 25 hl/ha. Extreme continental climate with long hot summer. Harvest during the first 2 weeks of September. Fermentation on the lees for 3 months at a temperature of 14-16°C. Aged for 4 months in American oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Clear lemon colour with golden rims. Clean aromas reminiscent of citrus, tropical fruits and ripe pineapple. On the palate it is fruity with pleasant acidity, toasted and vanilla flavors adding to body and volume. Long aftertaste.
