Description

Perro Callejero (the stray dog) is faithful… to his convictions. Guided by his accurate nose, he faces day after day his destiny and will seek his golden bone till the end. Don’t try to tame him…he is his own master.

The wine is made with hand-harvested grapes from two terroirs (50% from the Agrelo estate, 50% from El Manzano) at different dates in order to find the ideal ripeness and expression. Each component is then elaborated separately. The fermentation takes place in French oak barrels and concrete tanks, at low temperatures (around 23ºC), with indigenous yeasts, therefore achieving a great expression and complexity of aromas. The extraction processes are done manually by pisage – grapes crushed underfoot.

Each Cabernet Franc component is aged in French and American oak barrels for 6 to 8 months and the best barrels selected to make the final blend.

Dark red color. Elegant on the nose, with red and black fruit aromas and hints of mint. On the palate it shows plenty of damson fruit and is well balanced with a long smooth finish.
