Bassus “Finca Casilla Herrera”, 2014
A deep, dark and brooding blend from Eastern Spain.
|How it's made||
Grapes are selected from low yielding Bobal, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines in Hispano+Suizas' own vineyards. The climate is continental with Mediterranean influences and the soil is chalky-clay. The grapes are harvested in the cooler morning temperatures and then kept in cold storage for three days. After further selection and de-stalking, the grapes undergo cold maceration at 46 degrees F for four days, with daily submerging of the cap. After gentle pressing, each variety is fermented and aged separately for 10 months, with a further 10 months maturation after blending. Fermentation and maturation is all carried out in 400 liter French Allier and American oak barrels.
Ripe red fruit aromas with toasty vanilla and balsamic notes. The palate is full and rich with more red berry and dense black fruit flavors. Poised and well structured with balancing acidity, light smoky notes and a long finish.
This wine is paired well with roasts, red meats and steaks.
