Bodegas Nekeas Vega Sindoa El Chaparral
Bright red. Suave raspberry and cherry preserve aromas are compelling and sexy. Musky herbal and floral qualities add complexity to the nose but fade into the red berry aromas, which continue on the palate. Deep, sweet and pure, with strong raspberry and blackcurrant flavors repeating on the finish. This could easily pass for a serious southern Rhone wine and is one incredible value. The grapes were macerated for 30 days and fermented for 7 days. After fermentation, the wine is placed in 50% French Allier, 50% American Oregon oak, where it completed malolactic fermentation and then aged for 5 months on the lees. It was fined with egg whites and lightly filtered.
