An exquisite 'field blend' from the very careful selection of fruit from Gomez Cruzado's oldest vineyards.

This 'field blend' is produced from the fruit of Gomez Cruzado's oldest vineyards (over 50 year old vines) - south-east facing, in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria. The vines planted here are predominantly Tempranillo, but also Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuela and Viura. Soils are poor, chalky clay and white in colour, with slabs of calcareous rock beneath. The grapes are hand-picked into 15kg crates, and are sorted further by hand at the winery. The grapes undergo 4 days pre-fermentative maceration at low temperature, then temperature-controlled fermentation with daily remontage and delestage. Malolactic fermentation takes place in new oak barriques with weekly batonnage, followed by 18 months maturation in French, thin-grained, oak barriques.

Tasting notes

Wild cherry and bramble aromas with notes of liquorice. Richly flavoured with dark plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit. Fine tannins from well-integrated oak are balanced by vibrant acidity and developed dried fruit, mocha and toasty spice characters.

Food match

This characterful red will stand up to many richly-flavoured meat and vegetable dishes
