ABOUT THIS WINE
This wine is only produced in the best years from a selection of the best grapes from the oldest vineyards, which are more than 70 years old. Cold maceration was carried out for a few days before fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation took place at a low temperature of less than 26ºC with periodic pumping over. The wine was then transferred to new French oak barrels where it remains for 13 months. Bottled in May 2017 the wine continued to age in bottle for eight months before being released.
Beronia III a. C. 2015 is an intense red cherry colour. Aromas of ripe fruit such as cherry come through on the nose, complemented by subtle notes of menthol providing freshness and notes of cedar and slate reminiscent of forest wilderness. On the palate, the wine is complex: the first flavour to emerge is cocoa, which then develops into spice flavours, dominated by clove and pepper, with cinnamon adding sweeter notes. The combination of spices and fruit delivers a wine that is complex and has a long finish.
