Petra 2016

Wine Production

After a dry summer the harvest was one month later than the previous one, and also as dry as during the summer, allowing thus an excellent grape sanity. Due to the green harvesting in summer, the concentration and quality of the grapes was extraordinary, a superior quality vintage for us.

Tasting Notes

Color: Medium intensity with bluish tones at the edges on a cardinal’s
background. Dense and abundant legs.

Nose: Wide range of fruity aromas where the aromas of cassis and red fruit stand
out. Light touches of oak predominating the notes of toffee and vanilla.

Palate: Wide sensation and medium tension of great freshness and silky finish
due to its fine tannin. Long and savory aftertaste, which invites you to
return to the glass.

Food Pairing

Stews of fish such as tuna Marmitako or grouper in sauce. Rice and pasta in all its versions and white meats such as turkey and pheasant.
