The Autumn Equinox, at the end of September, represents the time of year when the day lasts the same as the night, anticipating the arrival of Winter. Equinox is our way of continuing the tradition of this land of making natural sweet wines with Black and White Garnacha.
The grapes are overripe in the vineyard, After having been destemmed and gently squeezed, the alcoholic fermentation begins in stainless steel tanks in contact with the skins. When it reaches about 150 g/ l of sugar concentration, it is stopped with the addition of wine alcohol and the mixture is macerated with the skins for one month at low temperature. In this way a powerful fruity profile is extracted that is complemented with its stay in French oak barrels for 3 months.
Colour: Amber-coloured, old gold, bright and crisp. Aroma: Expressive nose, intense and complex. Notes of nuts, quince, dried figs and a touch of floral notes with hints of honey.
