Vinification:

The 2007 Manyetes is a blend with the traditional varietals 65% Cariñena and 25% Garnacha where 6% Cabernet-Sauvignon and 4% Syrah were added.
The grapes are hand harvested, fermented in oak barrels and pressed using an olive press, which is thought to be more gentle than the traditional wine press. The wine is aged for 16 months in Eastern European and French barrels using 40% new casks and 60% second fills.
8000 bottles were produced and the wine was bottled in June 2009.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Purple with hints of blue.
Nose: Great minerality intermingled with spices and ripe fruits.
Palate: Rich fruity, with outstanding minerality and acidity, perfectly balanced with a long finish. Rich and complex.
Other: This wine will improve over time and may be aged for another 20 years. Would be best appreciated in a few years time. Manyetes should be opened in advance to best show the palette of aroma and flavor. It is a cerebral wine.
