The Clunia vineyards are located in the province of Burgos, Castilla y León at an altitude of between 900 and 1,100 metres above the sea level. Historically they have grown two grape varieties; three hectares of Syrah, and 10 hectares of Tempranillo, however, they have now added Malbec to their repertoire. The organic composition of this land is very poor, these are limestone, clay and sandy soils with pebbles and limestone loames which allow for an optimal drainage, thus limiting production considerably –between 3,000 and 4,000Kg/hectare. The singular character of this terroir results in wines with a unique personality, only changing slightly according to the subtle variations determined by the soil of each vineyard.
Intense colour of deep cherry red and violet. Aromas of ripe red and black fruit, combine subtle spicy and mineral notes. Flavours of blackberry, cranberry, plum and slight hints of black pepper are complemented by hints of toast and caramel
Try with barbecued beef, grilled steak or filet mignon.
