Elaboration

El Miracle By Mariscal is produced from a selection of hand-harvested Grenache Tintorera grapes grown on gobelet-trained 35 year-old vines, located in the “Valentino” wine production area. The wine is produced using very slow maceration and alcoholic fermentation until the malolactic fermentation is complete, when the wine is poured into second fill French oak casks. This guarantees perfect blending between the Grenache Tintorera varietal’s fruity character and the wood.

Tasting notes

Bright cherry with a deep robe and very luminous purple edge. It has an intense bouquet, an expressive and fragrant nose, dominant red fruit wrapped in smoky notes and mineral flavours. The nose is tamed by the wood, with hints of cedar. Smooth on the palate, good acidity and meaty, defined tannins that bring to mind ripe plums and black olives, with a long berry-laden finish. A fine wine with a Mediterranean character.
