Our Joven is a young wine offered for sale the spring after harvest with the aim of conveying an immediate impression of the year’s fruit quality. Its aroma showcases the primary fruit profiles of Tempranillo.
Dedicated to the pursuit of exceptional wines
Within minutes of picking, 25 percent of the fruit went into stainless steel tanks for whole-bunch fermentation. The rest was de-stalked before undergoing cold maceration at 10°C for three days and then a tumultuous fermentation at less than 20°C for between 6-8 days.
The 2020 harvest benefited from a warm and sunny autumn that ensured excellent fruit maturity. The grapes were grown in the younger 14-20-year-old plots of our vineyard, immediately adjacent to the winery.
Wine specsTasting notes
Our Joven offers a perfect route to familiarize yourself with Tempranillo’s seductive aromas and finely poised flavor which is reminiscent of strawberries and juicy cherries. A balanced mouthfeel confirms the vibrant purity of the fruit which is cushioned by soft tannins.
This wine goes perfectly with rice dishes including curries, Neapolitan pasta or pizza, grilled or barbecued hamburgers and most cheeses.
