Nose

Complex with deep aromas of cassis, black plums, spices and herbs from Provence laced with smoky notes, cloves, vanilla, and cocoa.

Palate

Elegant, sharp, and juicy with a fresh and fruity mouthfeel of wild fruit marmalade. Presence of balsamic and toasted hints that define its complexity. Its rounded and velvety tannins are in balance with the wine´s tight acidity. Long-lasting finish with a spicy and fruity aftertaste.

Growing Conditions

Minimum terroir intervention and gentle winemaking define the complexity of Escorihuela Gascón´s icon wines. The alluvial soils from El Cepillo vineyard are deep and sandy-loam with rocks rich in calcium carbonate (caliche).
