89 pts, Wine Enthusiast

"Spiced berry, dry oak and a note of latex define the nose on this ripe, likable, friendly Tempranillo. The wine is lively on the palate, with candied, jumpy flavors of berry fruits that finish with some foxiness and a wet-fur note. The emphasis here is on fresh fruit more than power or oakiness."

Resalte Vendimia Seleccionada is made by using gravity and temperature controls. When the grapes arrive in the cellar we lower its temperature to 8ºC for about 5 days, while we extract all its aromatic potential and grape color. Alcoholic fermentation with temperature not exceeding 24ºC, and then malolactic maceration for about 18 days for a better enrichment of its fresh, fruit character.   

Resalte Vendimia Seleccionada rests for at least 6 months in 500L new French oak barrels with different toastings - we found out this was the ideal volume for the vineyard to keep expressing without wood overpowering the flavour of the fruit.
