La Nymphina is our newest member of the family. She’s our young, fruity, flirtatious Monastrell nymph, who expresses the charming fruit of the Yeclan Monastrell. She’s made to be enjoyed young.
The grapes were handpicked at the optimum stage of ripeness the first two weeks of October 2011. Gentle de-stemming and crushing followed by removing 25% of the must (saignee) in order to concentrate colors, aromas and flavors. The grapes were cold soaked for 4-5 days at 5ºC before the addition of selected yeast strains. The musts were manually pumped over and punched down several times daily during the 12-14 days of fermentation and maceration. Racked to small 1 - 2 year old French Burgundy size oak barrels of 228 and 500 liters where it was aged for 6 months.Tasting Notes
Dark ribbon of raspberry color. Beautiful concentration of fruity aromas made up of black cherries, blueberry, coffee and dark spices such as cardamom. The softer more gentle aromas of milk chocolate and lavander rounds off the aromas and flavers making the wine more complete. Soft tannins, well balanced and long enjoyable aftertaste.
