Elaborated with selected vines from our own vineyards of Mas de Valls, we obtain this red wine of a shining dark cherry colour with purple reflections . We are in front of a Merlot with generous aromatic intensity with touches of ripened fruits on an herbal and floral background; it will develop and will surprise with time passing by.
It is powerful in mouth, attractive and well structured , enriched with slight toasted notes due to its ageing in barrels and its taste is persisting and defined.
Sensational for meat dishes, spicy ones, dishes with sauces, def initely with any kind of food.

Our vineyards are cultivated in lattice work (trellis) and they are pruned according to a medium pruning.
After having achieved the strictest ripening controls, our Merlot was harvested in its optimum ripening time, by end September.
We carefully fermentate and macerate this excellent variety at a controlled temperature around 26·C during 20 days. The malolactic process occurs spontaneously in stainless steel tanks before filling the product into French and American oak barrels where the wine is aged during 12 months.
Once bottled, and before being commercialised it will be left to settle until we obtain the wine it is today.
