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

30+ year old bush vines. Yield of 25 hl/ha. Extreme continental climate with long hot summer. Harvest during the second half of September. Cold maceration at 5°C for 48h, fermentation for 12-18 days at a temperature of 24-28°C. Aged for 4 months in 1-2 year old French and American oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Clear deep ruby-purple colour. Clean and distinguished aromas of black cherries, strawberries, roasted coffee beans and chocolate. On the palate berry flavours with juiciness getting smoothed out with light vanilla and delicate milk chocolate and roasted Java bean. On the palate the wine is luscious, full-bodied with firm and velvety tannins and a long finish.
