|Tasting notes||Our top cuvée, traditionally vinified in small open vats with‘pigeage’, basket-pressed, malo-lactic in barrel, aged 11 months in French (85%) and American oak (50% new barrels), bottled without filtration. Shows a pure beam of briary blackberry, black cherry and spice flavors, accented by hints of vanilla and dried herbs. The supple tannins frame the wine, while juicy acidity enlivens it. There’s good concentration, in a more elegant package.|

Biniagual is a tiny village with only 15 houses and a chapel where, back in the 13th century, the moors grew vineyards and olive trees. In the 19th century, Biniagual became quite successful as a wine producing region, until, at the beginning of the 20th century, the phylloxera destroyed the vines, the farmers left Biniagual and made a living elsewhere. Now, Biniagual has 34 hectare of vineyards – a part from the aforementioned agriculture which is still maintained- with around 148.000 vines.
