Leukade is an author’s red wine made from Tempranillo and Graciano.
It comes from two very small plots located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra which, due to their layout, age and altitude, do not reach the desired quality and ripeness every year. Only in the best years is this wine produced. Ideal with red meats, game stews and chocolate desserts.
Grapes: 95% Tempranillo. 5% Graciano.
Winemaking: Old vine grapes are fermented in French oak vats.
Ageing: 15 months in French oak casks.
Colour: deep cherry red with violet reflections.
Nose: intense, complex and elegant aroma. Ripe black fruit on a balsamic and spicy background.
Palate: powerful, full-bodied and flavoursome, full of aromas, fresh, excellent tone and elegant on the palate. Complex and long-lasting aftertaste.
Serving temperature: between 16ºC and 18ºC.
