Tasting Notes

Deep red cherry colour with mineral notes. Intense red fruit aromas; strawberries, raspberries, cherries and violets. Multilayered with deep, dark berry and damson fruit, well structured and long lasting flavours. All wines from Tandem are vegan.

Technical Notes

Grapes enter the winery by gravity. Cold maceration before fermentation starts at controlled temperature, 28 - 30 ºC. Fermentation without pumps, using cap plunging (pigeage) to obtain an elegant colour and fine tannins that will determine its palate structure. Wines racked by gravity to the lower storey vats for their malolactic conversion. Wines kept in vat for minimum 24 months settling down for a natural fining and stabilization. Bottled by gravity with a minimum filtration.

Reviews

One of Sarah Jane Evans’ 30 great value Spanish wines - Decanter, 90 pts. 88 point, eRobertParker.com 90 points - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Antonio Galloni Vivid ruby-red. Bright, nervy aromas of red berries and flowers complicated by suggestions of white pepper and succulent herbs. Tangy redcurrant and rose pastille flavors flesh out in the mid-palate, picking up a deeper cherry quality and a suggestion of licorice. Closes juicy, spicy and long, with no rough edges and just a whisper of tannins. This vibrant wine was aged in large concrete tanks for two years., 90 points - Stephen Tanzer
