Ruby colour with soft oak and dried fruit aromas on the nose, followed by raspberries and warm earthy tones on the palate with a touch of oak on the finish. Good integration of tannins and fruit make this a rich, smooth and balanced wine.
Martinez La Orden are producing some of the most cutting edge wines in Spain. They are fresh and vibrant with maverick winemaker, Jose Maria Martinez, striving to produce modern wines from his families old vineyards. Jose Maria constructed the first bioclimatic winery in Europe complete with solar panels, gravity fed wine pumping and a comprehensive plan for re-using waste water reducing the winery's carbon footprint.
Regular pumping over was carried out during the alcoholic fermentation to extract colour and structure. The wine was then transferred to French and American oak barrels for 12 months maturation.
Roasted lamb and rosemary, chorizo and grilled red meats.
