Cuvée Alegre

A second wine, Campo Alegre, the baby brother of Campo Eliseo, was first made in 2007, with the same attention to detail but a lighter style.

Description

Winemaking techniques

Harvesting by hand in 15kg crates, then sorting by hand on a conveyor before and after de-stemming.

Cold pre-fermentation for 4-5 days at 6°C with intense extraction, punching down and pumping over before alcoholic fermentation, followed by a long period of maceration on the skins (one month) with regular pumping over.

14 months in French oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Beautiful ripe cherry colour.

An expressive nose with red fruit, cocoa and delicate spice notes.

Rounded, well structured and tannic on the palate.
