Vinification and maturation
Monastrell maceration is 8 days and cabernet sauvignon is 12 days at 25 ºC. The wine is then put in American, French and Hungarian oak barrels.
Intense ruby color. A nose exhaling the smell of morello cherry, plum, and spicy notes. A wine with refreshing acidity and rich tannins. True to the perfumes perceived on the nose, it is affirmed by flavors of black fruits and sweet spices. It offers a wide mouth that extends into a fairly steady finish.
Perfect with grilled lamb, duck with cherries or a rabbit with olives.
Blés means the indigenous plant that grows among vineyards in the Valley of Alforins, in the Mediterranean region of Valencia. Ecological viticulture respects the balance of nature. The south of Valencia is the native region of the Monastrell (Mourvedre in France).
